Hello,

Does anyone know if there is a harness that could go around a bunny to be produced from somewhere? I have heard from a couple magicians, but have seen nothing on the market

Thanks in advance,

Evan

I have never heard of one per se, but perhaps you could look at the type of harness they have for "walking" cats and other small animals. These are available at local pet shops.

Maybe what you are looking for is an animal production "bag". It's not exactly a harness, but it does restrain the animal until the production is made. Is that what you are looking for?

Haha, funny you should mention that. I bought a nylon bunny bag for my rabbit, (keyword, NYLON!) My little cute little bunny chewed it in half!!! He absolutely hates it!! So I am just finding something different to hold him until production.

I have a bag that similar to cavas material for small duck. I guess, I have not used it though, Just found it from the Magic Castle swapmeet. You may want to try that kind of material.

Either that or tape the bunny's mouth shut. Are you feeding that poor rabbit Evan?

Very funny Mister Mystery:P. I don't think he eats it in starvation, at least I hope not (jk). Where did can you purchase this bag to hold your duck? I think canvas would probably be the best option.

Thanks again for the fast responses!

I bought it from one of the magic castle swapmeet. The matrial is not what I bought for but the "release key" was what I after. Smile

Hey MDS,

Can you PM me on how Victor and Diamond made theirs? I love my rabbit to death, and if he's in a harness being pulled by all his weight I don't want to hurt him.

Thanks,

Evan

The harness that V and D have out on the market in my opinion is cruel. It is basically a 1 location connect dove harness on a larger scale. I know someone that uses one and has killed 2 bunnies, but still continues to use the same method. I would stand clear of this and do a bag production. Abbott's has a small livestock bag that is pretty good and is safe or I have a design that I have made that works great as well. PM me if you are interested. It can be made out of just about any color that you want.

Hi,

Just a thought: "Does anyone read Tarbell anymore?" Thanks

The Tarbell series is great, and unfortunately most of the young magicians I talk to don't know what Tarbell let alone magic books in general even are. I've seen these rabbit harnesses and I'd have to agree with MDS. They are cruel and don't even look natural when you try to "pull" them. It looks like you're just jerking some awkward and heavy object out of somewhere, to me it is not magic but rather poor judgement. I don't believe that they are safe for the rabbit and it kills me everytime I see someone try to use them. I saw someone try to use one on a guinea pig type rodent thing once too and I'll just say that they're terrible! It's not magic and it just looks horrible, you can find a safer bag type holder either from Abbott's or by looking them up in the good old books...but what do I know

Abbott's Magic has made small, medium and large live stock bags for at least 40 years. They are very heavy material, like canvass. Contact them for your needs. Nice release to deliver the animal.
