Hi - I have a 2.5 year old male bunny named Boo Boo who is a biter. He
became aggressive at about 5 months and was neutered shortly there after.
It took well over a year and lots of patience and tough love on our part to
get him to calm down. He still is not and will never be a "normal" bunny.
His bites can be very deep and painful and often leave scars. He goes
through spells where he is *** and aggressive, but he also has moments
where he is just the sweetest bunny we have. He loves attention and getting
pets. He***s fingers and hands when he isn't in the mood to bite. He'll
honker down on the floor with you and just snuggle. So we just accept the
fact that he has issues and gets moody. I guess my advice to you is just -
time, patience and understanding.
