Disclaimer: I grew up way out in the country, raised by hillbillies, so this sort of thing ain't my first rodeo. Do not try this at home.
Baby rabbits = pretty docile, not likely to bite.
Big rabbits = you're going to be blogging with your toes from now on.
I'm entering this one over at LEM this week...the theme is animals. Ignore my dirty hands...I had been picking weeds!
I can't even tell you how disappointed the boy was that we eventually let them go. I had to...his daddy was sure I'd exposed us all to rabies (he's a city boy), and I'm almost positive they are still nursing (no teeth). Cute though, huh?
And lest you worry that Mama Rabbit won't take her babies back now that they smell like us...that's a total myth. These little mammals have pretty strong mothering instincts.
