I found a Baby Bunny.

What should I do?




Name Email
1. I found a nest of baby bunnies in my yard. They were covered with dry grass and fur.
They’re moving around, and act like they’re hungry. What should I do?
2. I've never seen wild babies up close before. I want to tell my friends about the nest I found.
What should I do?
3. I accidentally touched the bunnies when I found them, and I’m worried that the mother won’t come back.
What should I do?

4. I haven’t gone near the nest, and I didn’t tell my friends about the bunnies.
But I haven’t seen the mother rabbit.  Why hasn’t she come back?
5. I used blades of grass to make a pattern on top of the nest and left the bunnies alone for a day.
When I came back, the grass had been moved and the pattern had changed.
What should I do?
6. I've been staying away from the nest, and I think the bunnies will be okay, now.

But I still have a question.
How long do bunnies stay in the nest before they start to explore without their mother?
7. bunnyHow do I know if a bunny is old enough to be on its own?
8. I found a bunny in my yard, and the nest is empty.  It is sitting very still, and it looks big enough to be out of the nest, but it doesn't run away.

What should I do?
9. How can I tell if a bunny needs help?
10. What should I do if I find a bunny (baby or adult) that has been injured?
