"Normally, rabbits die before they are starved as he was - so it is truly a miracle he survived his ordeal," Hoyt wrote in a Facebook post, also stating that Rambo was "days from his death" by the time he reached the rescue.
"The owner had used our [rescue's] veterinarian to get him neutered a few months prior to surrender," Hoyt said. "I spoke to the vet about it and we decided that the best approach was to use this as an educational story and not to go after [the owner] personally ... Angora [rabbits] are the most difficult breed to own and keep properly."
Rambo was quickly given medical attention at the rescue. He was put on antibiotics, and gradually regained not only his weight, but his health. He was also shaved down. Sadly, since his fur was so matted, he experienced unavoidable cuts to his body during the process.
