The Fate of the Benoni Bunnies

Beneath the soft glow of the morning sun, a decision looms at the Johannesburg Zoo that could untwist the knotted future of our beloved Benoni bunnies. The day is September 20, 2017, a momentous turning point that perches on the precipice of hope and caution, as voices rise in a chorus of concern over the rabbits’ destiny.

A Decision at Dawn

In the quiet anticipation that envelopes the Benoni Bunny Park, whispers turn to words as the Johannesburg Zoo convenes to deliberate a pivotal choice—whether to open their grounds to more rabbits from the park. The gravity of this decision weighs heavily, as it holds the power to shape the course for thousands of furry lives.

A Burgeoning Brood and a Bold Assertion

The calm of the park has been punctured by a bold declaration from the Ekurhuleni Metropolitan Municipality’s (EMM)—a plan to dispatch at least 2,000 bunnies to the zoo, their fate sealed as sustenance for other animals. This statement, unveiled amidst a swirl of social media scrutiny, stirs the waters of concern for every compassionate observer.

A Legal Labyrinth

Bearing the banner of benevolence is Smaragda Louw, director and chairperson of Ban Animal Trading (BAT). Her words echo the sentiment of many—a belief that the municipality’s decision rends the very fabric of a high court order laid down earlier in the year. The mandate was clear: the EMM was to sterilize the park’s rabbits, a directive aimed to temper the tides of their breeding.

Legal Leverage and a Lapse in Leadership

Louw’s resolve remains unshaken, as legal artillery is assembled with the promise of an urgent application to halt the municipality’s motion. She speaks of missteps in the management of the sterilization process, a patchwork attempt that failed to keep pace with the park’s prolific procreators.

Zoo's Stance Shrouded in Silence

As the sun arcs overhead, the Johannesburg Zoo’s spokesperson, Jenny Moodley, acknowledges the issue’s gravitas as one for the annals of legal guidance. The day’s end holds the answers, with expectations set high for legislation to lead the way.

A Question Unanswered

EMM’s Themba Gadebe stands amid the maelstrom, without confirmation or clarity as the park’s patrons await with bated breath. Yet amidst the unfolding drama, the zoo received its inaugural group of 50 rabbits, a confounding contradiction amidst the call for compassion.

As dusk descends, the Benoni bunnies find themselves adrift in a sea of uncertainty. The voices of those who champion their cause rise against the dimming light, a beacon of hope that the morrow may usher in a chapter of certainty and care.

Their whispers drift through the park, a quiet prayer that compassion will prevail, and a commitment that no matter the verdict, the struggle for their safeguarding will endure.
