Hello. My friend has noticed a baby bunny stuck in the window well of her house. It cannot get out since it the hole is quite deep. The bunny looks super young, I'd say not more than a few weeks old. What can i do to help it? Im a bit nervous about rabies or different diseases that it may be carrying..

Rabbits tend to not carry many deadly diseases, especially the babies. Take a look at the baby and see if it has been fed recently by checking if its tummy is full.
maybe see if the mother is nearby.

P.S. see if RHDV2 is in your area before handling it.

I would get it out. Maybe using a box with some fresh grass and dandelions (no herbicides ) to entice it in. It will die if left in there with no way to get out.

Once out, if it's eyes are open and it can hop, it's old enough to survive on its own, so it can be immediately released somewhere safe in the same area, like in some bushes.
