Adorable Bionic Bunny Gets a Set of Wheels to Replace Paralyzed Hind Legs
This might be the cutest thing I've ever seen. A baby bunny just went bionic, as some nice farmers outfitted him with a wheeled contraption to replace his paralyzed hind legs. You can watch Wheelz use his new "legs," and give his owner bunny kisses, in the video below:


According to his owners at Overlook Acres, Wheelz wandered away from his mother's nest and got lost on a farm, getting severely bitten by an adult rabbit and nearly freezing to death in the process. After this physical trauma, Wheelz lost the use of his hind legs, so the farmers took him in, nursed him back to health, and gave him a skateboard-like walker to roll around on. And as you can see in the videos, he seems happy and healthy in spite of his paralysis.



Overlook Acres wants to turn this heartwarming story into a children's book, because of course they do. This story is pretty much already a bedtime story. You can donate to the Kickstarter campaign for the prospective book here.
