Keeping baby rabbits safe
My husband just found a nest of baby rabbits in our front yard. Several of our neighbors have cats that run around, and terrorize our wildlife. Does anyone have any ideas on how to keep the babies safe in their nest, and still allow mama rabbit acess to them? they are nearly ready to leave their nest, but not quite yet. I'm trying to decide if it would be better to bring them in, and raise them for the next week, and then release them, or leave them to the fate of the neighborhood cats. We've had several wild bird nests raided by said cats, and I don't want to have to "clean up" bunnies like I've had to "clean up" baby birds.
