What to do if you find wild bunnies.......
Rabbits hide their nests in plain view, often putting them in the open, sometimes in the middle of the lawn, as well as in brush piles and long grass. If you find a nest that has been disturbed, do all you can to restore and protect it. Do NOT bring it inside. If a dog has discovered the nest, keep your dog away from the area and reconstruct the nest with grasses. If need be, you can move the nest a few feet away where safer, even up to 5-6 feet away. A moved nest should always be covered with string in a tic tac toe pattern and monitored to be sure the mother found it and came back to the babies. She will scrabble away the surface area to feed her babies beneath her and then scrabble the earth, grass, leaves, back over the nest to hide it again so it’s pretty easy to see if the string has been disturbed.
NOTE: Babies should never be put back into a nest that has been flooded with water, has bugs/ants visibly crawling in and out, or if a baby has been killed and there is blood in the nest. Use common sense. Baby bunnies who have fleas are compromised and should be immediately taken to a wildlife rehabber. If this NJ list does not have a center in your county, call the closest one. They will be your best resource. Thank you for caring for our wildlife friends.
This little bunny was abandoned early in 2018. She had been seen running in a northern NJ neighborhood since "February or March" and after many attempts was finally caught by two very caring women on Nov. 5th. Hard to believe a domestic bunny could survive so long; she did, although her poor condition, injuries and hunger indicate how much she suffered. It was November 5, 2018 - one day after our event - that Safe Haven received an email about the rescue of this little bunny.
Why do people think domestic rabbits will do O.K. on their own? They do NOT! And it is a very cruel reality happening all too often.
Head over to our Sponsorship page for her story. Bunsy really needs your help. And, she needs to know there are people out there who are kind and caring. Please show her she has your support! Thank you!
