This year, the staff and volunteers of WRC have successfully raised and released 85 Eastern Cottontail Rabbits… and it’s not even May yet! We are on track to have what may be our busiest year ever! We’ve seen an increase in early admissions due to the nice spring weather.
The bunny in this picture is about the size of a tennis ball and able to fit in the palm of a person’s hand. It may seem strange that such a small animal is not being cared for by its mother, but bunnies are perfectly capable of feeding themselves when they are this size. It’s always a happy event to release an animal that has been in our care.
