Someone mentioned to me using a rabbit as an attention getter for street busking. Of course there will be more responsibilities. I already use several animals in my magic shows. There a couple tricks a rabbit can be used for. One is to find a selected card.

Do you think most city ordiances will allow those with "perfoming on the streets permits" approve rabbits in parks and public sidewalks?

If I recall, there was a thread about this some time back. Using animals on the street poses a risk for the animals. The general concensus was... don't do it.

Packing light and having the ability to move quickly is also a consideration and having live animals to haul seems like a pain to me.

Of the 4 buskers that use(d) animals on the streets that I know, it ended badly for 3 of those poor critters. The fourth busker is a middle-aged lady clown who I don't see too often, but who treats her rabbit like a human child. Maybe that was the difference, her genuine affection for her animal assistant.

I do use live animals in my magic shows. One is a rabbit. From what I learned so far with street busking I can see two disadvantages using a rabbit. One is the children would want to come up and pet the rabbit after my act. It will be slowing me down from getting ready for my next act. That can cost me a lot of money throughout the day. The other reason is someone in the crowd might tell a police officer a lie, mentioning I am mistreating my rabbit. The police can tell me any reason to pack up and leave. So I can see advantages and disadvantages using a rabbit.
