I have a female 7-month old holland lop bunny who has become aggressive within the past 2 months or so. When I got her, I planned to accustom her to human contact by always holding her, etc... But unfortunately, I couldn't be with her for the last 3 months. During this time, she didn't receive much human contact and she mostly hopped around the house freely and slept in corners (during the day).
Now, whenever I am near her, she will jump out of nowhere and attack my ankle. I was giving her some hay through her cage the other day and she growled at me. I'm pretty much terrified to be near her at this point, since I can never predict what she will be like. I thought she would be tame and docile as she was when I first got her, but not shes just angry all the time. She has a great cage, great food, and lots of playtime.
My question is: Is it too late to try and make her friendly? Will she ever be tame again, or should I return her to her seller? I only consider this because this is causing me a great deal of stress and sadness and I don't want her to be unhappy. I really need a friendly bunny that enjoy human contact and being held. Any advice would be appreciated. Thank you.
