Honestly, my first thought is that he's totally okay and not to worry.

Thing is, he's wild, been out there his whole life, and knows that whenit starts snowing, he best find a better place to be. If hedoesn't notice right away, believe me, the little guy is quiteproficient at digging, and would be able to dig his way out.

I wouldn't worry, Hun...I'm sure he's just fine, having gone somewhereless of a danger to a little bunny body like his.Remember...they have instincts that pass down from generations of wildbunnies. He's not a domestic bun that's been put outside inthe snow for the first few times, ya know?

I think he's just fine, and you'll see him when the snow startsclearing up, or even playing in the snow while it's stilldown! :)

Anyway, not that I'm an expert on wild bunnies...but that was my first thought in my general wild animal knowledge. :)

Hugs!

Yup, a wild bunny will be just fine. :) Probably would do more harm than good to disturb him.

The domestic bunnies that idiot peopleturned loose are adifferent story, though. I just hope they've built some warmwarrens... or something. :(

I worry for the domestic buns, too, Pipp...thebest thing we can do is take them in (or to a shelter) when we seethem, and pray for the ones we don't see/find. Poorbabies...winter must be so difficult for them. :(

:pray:

I'm sure he'll be just fine, I'd just leave him:). If he does get stuck, he can always dig himself out (he might havesome fun in the process too! :)). If you were to try to help him, hewould probably see you more as a predator than someone trying to helphim :).
