I would not recommend feeding prunes to a rabbit. Rabbits are herbivores and should be fed a high fiber-low sugar diet. Rabbits should be fed timothy hay-free choice, a high quality pelleted rabbit diet, and treats (vegetables like lettuce, spinach, carrots) in small amounts. Water should be available at all times.

Do not feed rabbits lettuce as the answer above says! Lettuce can cause diarrhea in rabbits so much so that it can be fatal..
I reckon prunes are too much for bunnies, too sugary for their diet. I'd give dried slices of carrot or apple as about the sweetest and richest thing for an occasional treat only.

If you want your bunny friend to live as long a life as possible, stick to hay or grass in the main (80-85%?), small amount of pellets, small amount of suitable veg and lots of love (100%).
