    Right in the middle of our front lawn! Husband got side-tracked and didn't mow the lawn for a while....he startled Momma Bunny the other morning and went over to find out that he'd mowed the top off her little den.

    So we put back the tufts of dead grass and fur, and have been hoping the little ones are OK.

    I know, I should have pictures ..... they're about adult mouse size, and seem to ile together like other little rodents do. Their little eyes are open and they look pretty much like grown bunnies only a lot smaller. But they're sooooo! much cuter! We just look at 'em, although I'm told it wouldn't cause Momma to reject them if we did. As long as they seem to be fine there's no need to disturb them.

    Don't ask me why Momma didn't use our woodpile like the smart bunnies do.

    Momma will probably kill them all. Sorry, gruesome, I know, but true.

    Bunnies are funny, and not the best parents.

    Side-tracked husbands are the leading cause of bunny deaths in this country.

    I'm beginning to feel like a harbinger of death and destruction, between this and the baby robin thread.

    Small animals bring death & destruction to mind? My TOWN has pet chickens that hang out around my house, when the cats are roaming elsewhere.

    I've been around animals a lot, so when I hear people talking about baby bunnies and robins, I have lots of horrific tales to share.....

    Sad to read that; I did have a pet bunny killed by a dam*ed hunting dog once.
