Is Cannibalism common within rabbit does?

Cannibalism among rabbit does (female rabbits) is generally not a common behavior. However, in rare cases or under certain circumstances, cannibalism may occur. It is important to note that cannibalism is a serious and abnormal behavior that should be addressed and prevented.

There are several potential factors that can contribute to cannibalism in rabbits, including stress, overcrowding, nutritional deficiencies, health issues, or improper maternal care. Providing appropriate housing conditions, adequate space, a balanced diet, and proper veterinary care can help minimize the risk of cannibalism.

If you observe cannibalistic behavior among your rabbits, it is essential to intervene promptly. Separate the aggressor(s) from the rest of the rabbits and ensure they are provided with appropriate care and environmental conditions. It is recommended to consult with a veterinarian who is experienced in rabbit care to determine the underlying cause and develop a suitable management plan to prevent further incidents.
