Piston is a young male rabbit that is believed to be about one year old. The little bunny came to ACCESS Specialty Animal Hospital, Los Angeles, after a long ride from Nevada to Manhattan Beach—inside the engine of a Toyota Sienna! Luckily, technicians at the Manhattan Beach Toyota Dealership were able to remove Piston from the engine. Avian and exotics specialist, Dr. Olivia Petritz, examined Piston and found no injuries. Miraculously, this wild little guy was in great condition! He is still doing well and has plans to be released by a licensed wildlife rehabilitator.
It is important to note that only licensed wildlife rehabilitators are legally allowed to care for wild animals. Please contact your local wildlife rehabilitation center if you find a sick or injured wild animal.
