A confrontation between two neighbors over a lost bunny when a 4-year-old let the neighbor’s bunny out of its hutch while they weren’t home. The confrontation highlights the importance of supervision, safety measures, and accountability in a community
Somebody’s Ringing the Bell
When the neighbor’s 4-year-old daughter rang their doorbell and found no one home, she went around to the backyard and let herself in to play with the toys left in the playroom, which was unlocked, while the family was away. She also played with the neighbor’s daughter’s pet bunny which was in a hutch outside. The bunny unfortunately went missing, leading to a confrontation between the neighbors about responsibility and cost.
The owner of the bunny was understandably upset when she discovered that her neighbor’s 4-year-old daughter had let herself into their backyard and let the bunny out of its hutch.
They Searched and Searched
The owner and her family searched for the bunny and recruited multiple neighbors to help search, but it was never found, and they were heartbroken over the loss of their beloved pet. The incident highlighted the importance of supervision and safety measures, as well as the need for accountability and consequences when mistakes are made.
The neighbor who owned the bunny was upset and asked the other family if their daughter had let the bunny out, which they confirmed, and the owner of the bunny asked the other family to pay for a new one, even though they could afford it themselves, to hold them accountable for their daughter’s actions and to encourage them to supervise her more closely in the future.
Actions Require Consequences
The owner of the bunny confronted her neighbor about the incident and asked them to pay for a new bunny, even though they could afford it themselves. The bunny owner’s husband was worried that asking for payment could strain their relationship, but the owner felt that there needed to be consequences for their neighbor’s lack of supervision and that paying for a new bunny could help them learn to be more responsible.
After the confrontation, the owner talked to the other family about her concerns for their daughter’s safety and recommended some safety measures, such as sensors on the doors that sound when they’re opened, and the owner found a shelter in town that referred her to a rabbit rescue to find a new bunny and a happier way to house it.
She Asked for Advice
The woman was worried she had done the wrong thing asking for her neighbor’s to pay for the bunny. This bunny wasn’t just an item to her it was a beloved family pet and she was incredibly upset. She began to feel guilty about asking for payment so she turned to the internet for some advice.
The Internet Responded
This commenter wrote, “I’m sorry but what? WHAT? Who lets their child roam free into another person’s yard when they’re not home?! That’s not their house, not their toys, not their property. The fact that she came into your house without your permission is enough to warrant punishment. But the fact that she let out your bunny is beyond me. I really don’t think you’ve been unreasonable.”
More Internet Responses
Another person commented, “A four-year-old no less. For at least 45 minutes, maybe more, the neighbors had no idea their preschool child was not at home. That kid could have just kept on walking down the street, been picked up by some random stranger, could have ended up anywhere. And her parents had absolutely no idea.”
A Final Comment
This last person wrote, “While I do think she probably went there because she knows OP has kids, and maybe plays with them, this is scary. Kid should not be going alone to neighbor’s houses. Thinking of how that opens her up to predators is terrifying!”
