Baby bunnies

Update on the update: Today is August 25. The landscapers had mowed again and removed my flags. With the help of the bf, we checked on the bunny nest. I had been too fearful to check on them for fear of seeing the carnage. The hole was completely empty including the mom's fur. Later we saw what I presumed is mom bunny on the other side of the building. I'm really hoping she just relocated the baby buns to a safer location (hopefully within the bushes to avoid the lawn mower).

Update: Today is thursday and I haven't seen Mom since Tuesday. On Tuesday, she was visible hopping around the lawn and on the nest. I checked on them yesterday and they were still alive. The mowers came today and between that and the lack of mom, things have probably gone south very quick I can't bring myself to check on them.

I found these baby bunnies in my lawn. I had suspected there was a bunny den and confirmed it today. Mom was hanging out by the now confirmed den. I was worried they would be mowed down, so I placed two pin flags alerting the landscapers about them. Hopefully they won't kill or move them and I can snuggle them when they get bigger. I'll keep you all posted.

Hola, buen trabajo at the espanol!
I hope the conejitos don't go cannibalistic, that's what the ones we rescued from the lawnmower did when I was little. It did not end well.

Kudos to you for Not Moving the Rabbits or touching them. That would have sealed their fate.

New to the site, wandered over from Lioux, the born to be riled guy...

I don't think things have ended well with the baby bunnies since I still haven't seen mom. I can't bring myself to check on them. I just hope that somehow mom moved them to a safer spot.
