1. This is Wheelz, a baby bunny who gets around on a tiny skateboard wheelchair.
Wheelz, who lives at Overlook Acres, a small farm in upstate New York, was paralyzed after being bitten by an adult bunny. He was found hours later, out of his nest box and nearly frozen.
“My wife went in there, scooped him up, and wasn’t sure if he was still alive,” Wheelz’s owner, Jason Ambrosino, told BuzzFeed. “Then she saw his nose move.”
2. Jason and his wife Sonja built the wheelchair out of a finger skateboard, a sock, and a bra strap, all from the local dollar store.
But they will soon need to build a new wheelchair, because Wheelz is quickly growing too big for the tiny skateboard.
4. Now, Jason and Sonja are trying to get a children’s book written about Wheelz.
“So many people have been touched by this little bunny and its willingness to adapt to its differences that I thought that his back story also needed to be shared,” Jason wrote on the Kickstarter page.
