This evening our barn cat, Poppy, brought us a large "gift" in his mouth a baby cottontail rabbit. The baby was mostly unharmed and still alive. A storm was raining on all of us so I brought the baby rabbit inside. It's in a cage with shavings and greens away from us and the cats. We will release away from our farm if it is strong enough to run. Rabbits never show signs of pain as they are prey and it could have internal injuries I can't see. We have a lot of wild rabbits on our farm and they are a pest if unchecked. But we will give it a chance and set it free to join its rabbit pals in the morning. I checked and it is a boy rabbit.
