Sponsoring Member: John Grant MP

Posting Date: 18/07/2014

Closing Date: 18/01/2015

Responded By: Hon Bill Byrne MP on 14/04/2015

TO: The Honourable the Speaker and Members of the Legislative Assembly of Queensland

Queensland citizens draws to the attention of the House the outlawing of pet rabbits in Queensland is unnecessary and unfair as it is legal in every other State of Australia to keep a domestic pet rabbit.


Your petitioners, therefore, request the House to remove existing restrictions and allow Queensland residents to apply for a permit to keep registered, desexed and vaccinated domestic pet rabbits.
