Maybe it's because we are expecting our own child, or maybe it's just because we have bleeding hearts when it comes to poor, sweet, defenseless creatures. But we have become very attached to the little bunnies in our yard. And very heart broken over the two we had to rescue from the death trap of Koby's mouth.
The first one was harder to witness. We watched as the bunny hopped toward the fence practically right into Koby's mouth. I yelled for him to drop it as I heard the little bunny scream, knowing it was already too late. I cried when he finally released the lifeless body from his jaws. And I'm not gonna lie, I still cry when I hear that little bunny's scream replaying in my head.
The second one, we didn't see it happen. We just saw another lifeless bunny dangling from Koby's mouth. Slightly more mangled then the first, but still just a toy to be caught and carried around. And I know what my dad would say, how that's just the facts of life and all that. But these were my baby bunnies. Sure I didn't feed them or produce them, but I made sure they were safe and getting fed. I ushered them to a safe bush so Mason could mow the lawn without giving them a hair cut. I cared for them the best I could without interfering with their own mothers duties. So yes, that is part of nature, but that doesn't mean I have to like it.
Please stay away from the fence. Do not try to go through the fence into the back yard. That is certain death. There is a big red monster who would like nothing more then to make you his new toy. The front yard and the side yard are yours to use as you please. Again, do not go near the fence.
