This "Horror Rabbit Nest" is located in an apartment in Jinlingli, Pingzhen District. The balcony and living room are full of vegetables, garbage, and mud that can't be distinguished from rabbit feces or mud. Rabbits of different sizes are in groups Nested in different corners, even wearing a mask, you can still feel the smell in the air.

There is a mattress by the wall of the living room, which is Ke Nan’s shelter, but there are rabbits jumping up and down from time to time, and the clothes hanging on the wall are suspected to be too long since they haven’t been worn, and they are also full of spider webs.

As for spaces such as kitchens, toilets, and vacant rooms, the environment is too dirty and unusable, and it has become a playground for rabbits.

Zhuang Yusheng, head of the Jinling District, said that Ke Nan lived there for 3 to 40 years. There were originally a family of 4, but Ke Nan's wife passed away from cancer many years ago. After the child grew up, he also moved to the south-central area because the home environment was too dirty, leaving Ke Nan to live alone.

Zhuang Yusheng pointed out that two years ago, Ke Nan raised hundreds of rabbits at home, causing the environment to be dirty and disturbing the neighbors. At that time, relevant units were invited to intervene. At that time, a total of 164 rabbits were caught and sent to legal authorities. location, and clean up Ke Nan's house.

Unexpectedly, Ke Nan secretly kept several rabbits while the cleanup personnel were not paying attention, and there were many more in the past two years.

Zhuang Yusheng said that Ke Nan is very caring, but he can't even take care of himself, and he can't take good care of these rabbits, and the dirty environment has also caused great trouble to the neighbors. After months of constant communication, he is willing to let someone come and take care of them. Rabbits take away.

Ke Nan was interviewed and said that he likes small animals very much. A few years ago, he saw other people raising rabbits and thought they were cute, so he brought two home to keep him company.

He said with a smile that there were only two rabbits at first, but the more the rabbits were born, the more he raised them. Because he was unable to work due to a stroke, he relied on the 8368 yuan from the labor insurance to buy feed and vegetables for the rabbits every month. After eating instant noodles, I feel quite sad that the rabbit will be taken away.
