Today, my boyfriend fed a "random mushroom from the woods" to my rabbit. It then had a violent seizure and died. He claims it must have been from "natural causes". FML
FacePalmPower tells us more :
Hey OP here! Yes, it was a very stupid move he made, but it WAS an accident! He got the mushroom confused with another which he thought was safe! Although I am very sad, I now have a strict "No feeding the rabbits!" rule! So my other 5 buns should be safe. He was also the rabbit my mother got me before she moved out of state for good so it's even sadder. And no I did not dump him, we've been together for 3 years and although I was pissed for a day or two, I forgave him because I know he wouldn't hurt my rabbits on purpose, he knows they are all like my little children! All of your comments cracked me up though so I'm glad I could get a laugh out of a sad situation. Thanks guys, you rock!

@2 It required human interference, which isn't considered natural.

40 Humans can affect nature, but I'm honestly not sure if we are a part of it anymore. Louis CK has a joke about humans being out of the food chain because of things like fast food and grocery stores. Then again I might just be thinking about it to hard.

I'd dump my bf if he killed one of my pets. I mean it not like he forgot to feed your fish tank (though I'd be furious since mines saltwater) he fed it something that is KNOWN to be dangerous to eat unless you get it from a grocery store or have a full understanding of how to pick good/poisonous mushrooms.
So 1. I wouldnt want to be with someone that is that stupid and 2. Someone that is irresponsible enough to kill not only an animal but MY animal.
of course this stance could just be because I'm an avid animal lover and owner and I don't own a single pet under $250.

Yeah, he killed op's rabbit, which is enough to me to warrant breakup, but he also won't even step up and take rightful blame. I'd never want to see or talk to him again.

He killed a rabbit because he was uncaring and ignorant enough to break every basic rule of safety with pets, and mess around with a bunny loved by his girlfriend. I don't care if it's an accident, if you kill someone I love I'm gonna have a hard time having valentine's day with you.

Natural causes would be something like it was old and it's heart gave out. This wasn't the case here, it died of poisoning.

That's like saying you fed someone the same mushroom, they died, and then claiming it was natural. You would be held responsible for the death because they did not naturally die.
