A Bunny We Helped Today

Well my mom came home this morning from visiting the landlord and she had a cat carrier in her hand. She was tellin me that she caught the little bunny because the cat was trying to kill him, he looked like his hip had been broken for awhile which is probably the reason the cat caught him so easy, and he was only bleeding just a little so if the shock he went through today doesn't kill him we might just keep him. Haven't picked a name out yet I will let ya'll know if we do. The reason we thought about keepin him is because although he is a wild bunny he will die if his hip is broke because he will never be able to get away from predators like what happened to him today and he is just a little things. :( I gotta read up online and see if I can figure out his age and see if he has to drink some kinda milk or if he should be drinkin water and what he should be eating so far. Anyways look at the cutie below. If anyone knows anything about bunnies please pass on some knowledge.


We sent him on to a local rehabilitation center for injured animals the nc wildlife people told us it was best due to the broken hip or leg needed to be splinted and such. So they just left with him and he should be just fine just not in our family.

I raised & released 5 wild baby bunnies. If y`ou choose to keep him, he'll need to be handled every day as it only takes about a wek for a rabbit to revert to it's wild state & start being afraid. (Bunny bites hurt, BTW)
Recipe for bunny milk:
1 egg yolk
1/2 cup EVAPORATED milk
1/2 cup water
2 tbls Corn Syrup

Mix it well & store in fridge. Warm it like you would baby formula & feed it to him with an eye dropper.
You actually (according to books I've read) only need to feed him twice a day for 2 weeks, but I fed the ones I had for six weeks every few hours & they were HUGE bunnies by the time I released them.
There should be enough water in the milk but when you start giving him greens & rabbit food (you can get it at WalMart) he'll need a water bottle. Don't give him too much lettuce, as it can cause diarrhea & kill him. Other than that, rabbits love most vegetables & some fruits. Dandelions seem to be a particular favorite.
I can't tell how old he is from the photo; sorry. Are his eyes still glued shut? If so, he's younger than a week.
Wild rabbits are supposed to be incredibly difficult to foster. But if you are willing to put in the time, it's actually not that hard. Best of luck to you & your bunny.
