Baby Bunnies

Baby Bunnies

by Sandy Juba

 

On October 18, 2016, I got called to a homeowners yard where 4 baby rabbits were discovered by the owners dog. The CSA had just mowed the grass and surprisingly they were not run over. We stablized the nest with the babies in it and covered it over with dead grass. There were 2 hawks checking out the situation. The homeowner thought she was helping the babies by feeding them some milk. That unfortunately is not the thing to do. Best to never attempt feeding and call myself or a local rehabilitator. Never worry that Mom will not come back. Rabbits are like deer. They leave their babies for the day and will not return till dusk. Hopefully this mother will relocate her babies, as they are now out in the middle of a lawn in the full sun.
