Don't go into Mr. McGregor's garden!
Bunny Update: We researched what to do with our lost bunny and found that he may not be lost at all. All sites we read said that rabbits of this age/size will wander a distance from their nest during the day and that it is likely we will not see the mama, as she will only return at night. Also, we were warned against trying to rescue him ourselves and that few wild rabbits live under those circumstances unless you are a professional rehab - which of course is not available here. But there is good news! As the web sites predicted, Peter Rabbit is nowhere to be found this evening, so we assume he has returned to his nest. The lettuce and carrot we left him disappeared also. :)
Dave found this little guy in the yard a couple nights ago. Don't know what happened to his mama or Flopsy, Mopsy and Cottentail.
To give you a little perspective on how small he is:
We checked on him last night, and he was still hiding under the rain spout. I don't want to encourage rabbits near the garden, but we picked a couple lettuce leaves and a small carrot and left them for him to nibble until Mama returns. Hope she makes it before this little guy meets up with the mower - or the dogs when Dave's not there to control them.
Anyone want to raise a rabbit?
