So, it goes like this. The little bunny that has been in our yard, is still here. He’s quite happy munching down on the apples, ears of corn… just about anything we want to send his way.
We contacted the local rabbit rescue and they have room for him. Sunday night we set out a “have a heart” trap and the little bugger is avoiding it like the plague.
Today, the volunteers at the rabbit rescue came out to see if they could catch him, but he’s not having any of the that.
I really enjoy the little guy, but I worry about him. We live on a mildly busy street, but most importantly, we have greyhounds. Several of them, even in their teens would think it was yah hah time if he ever got back to where they are at.
When I came home at noon to let the dogs out, I heard them barking at the fence. I thought it was probably a rabbit, but when I went to check on them it was actually a very beautiful red boxer/pittie dog in the neighbors yard next door. When he saw me in our backyard he promptly exited the yard. I went out front to see if I could find him, but he had disappeared.
When I drove home from work I could see him in the field next to the high school. I ran in, grabbed some treats and a leash and headed over to the field. Karen went ahead of me because she just has this way with dogs, but as soon as he saw us coming he got up to leave. He’s holding up one of his hind legs, so he’s been hurt.
I’ve posted in the lost and found pets of Salem, looked on Craigslist and found nothing.
I feel so bad, so helpless. 🙁
