I did some research on a wild rabbit site today. Touching them will not ca use the mother to abandon them. In fact, it said if the nest is destroyed you can make a new nest near the location of the original and the mother rabbit will come back and find them in the night. Though, she may move them to a new location. Apparently, the handling of them causing the moms to abandon them is an old wives tale. Same as with baby birds. The mother will not abondon them either after handling as many people are led to believe. In all we learned alot about bunnies today!

Re: Help! I just flooded baby rabbits out of their den!

Well, so far so good! The night before last we had a terrible thunderstorm...I didnt sleep a wink worrying about those babies! I thought if my hose flooded them out surely the flooding rain would! As soon as I could I drove over to the new site and checked on them, they were fine...much to my relief. I wish they would grow up already so I can stop worrying about them! I was hoping the mother would move them, I do not want to know about it if something happens to them! By next summer I will be on here complaining about rabbits eating my flower beds....you guys be sure to remind me how cute and precious they were. LOL
