Why? Humans just all have a dumb herd mentality. Mass purchase of living beings just because they're representative of a holiday and abandoning them later on when they cant care for them is just unbelievable. Hopefully when the current young generation who's been inundated with information about animal abandonment on social media grow up, they'd know better than the current generation of parents.
    I don't think that things like that will get better anytime soon.A few weeks ago I was talking to someone about how horrible Easter is when it comes to the irresponsible people and animals,and they said '" but they're just dumb animals, it's not like they have feelings or know what's going on."

    If people could understand what life is like for all the animals that are adopted for Easter would they stop breeding, selling, and buying,or would they continue?

    I think that if people understood life from an animal's point of view, animals would be treated better. I also think that many bad breeders would continue breeding for the money, but hopefully people wouldn't buy from them
