So, I’m aware that this website is focused towards domestic rabbits, but I’m having a problem involving a wild rabbit. On April 5th, (4 days ago) a rabbit gave birth to 6 bunnies in my yard. We kept our distance and did not touch the nest. Fast forward to today, it was VERY windy and the grass/fur covering the nest was mostly blown off. I looked at the bunnies to see how they were doing, and all but one of the six were dead. The only one alive was skinny and freezing so I ended up taking him inside and putting him in a box with towels and some of the fur from the nest. When I first took him in he was making noises and opening his mouth, I gave him some warm water to help warm him up while I waited for my dad to come home with the kitten milk replacement. He had about 1 cc/ml of kmr but that was all I could get him to take. I gave him some time to sleep and tried again in about an hour. He will not drink any more kmr and I tried to give him some fruit juice with no added sugar (pinneapple juice), but he was not interested either. I tried to help him go to the bathroom, but nothing happened. He will not move much and seems very weak. He is currently sleeping and seems to be not cold, but not warm either. I’m very worried and I have taken care of wild rabbits before, but never one this young. If you have any suggestions I would definitely try.
