A lot of times people will buy baby bunnies, chicks and ducks around Easter. Sometimes they are dyed in "Easter colors". They are bought more as a gift than as a pet and once the excitement has worn off, the animal gets neglected. I'm sure some people get them and take good care of them, but I'm willing to bet there are more that don't.
