Paralyzed Bunny Gets Teeny Tiny Skateboard Wheelchair

This little enhancement is getting a big reaction.

Jason Ambrosino and his wife, Sonja, found a bunny — since named Wheelz — “stiff and frozen” on their farm recently in Amsterdam, N.Y.

Along with two other people on their Overland Acres farm, they managed to nurse the bunny, who wasn’t more than a week old, back to health, although they noticed his hind legs would not move. While that may have made him a candidate to be euthanized, Ambrosino’s team saw another option by buying a skateboard toy from a dollar store and attached a small wheel to it.

The result? Wheelz is the coolest rabbit on the farm.

The experience has been so enriching that Jason and Sonja hope to write a children’s book about it.

There’s certainly an audience — the video has racked up more than 24 million views.
