When I lived in Ames we always had rabbit nests in our yard. If my labs didn’t get to them first, my brother’s pythons loved them. 🙂 My older lab finds them to be a great delicacy. I would yell at her to drop them, but they would just get swallowed hole when I head towards her to get them from her.realtown12ParticipantMay 1, 2009 at 2:00 pmPost count: 466
You could just buy a snake (boa) and it will take care of that problem but then you would have a snake on the loose.. What about a cat? there should be plenty of cats, i had like 8 or 10 bunnies under my porch, the city cats have taken care of a at least 3 that i have counted. you could import a cat and then just export it when it’s done its purpose, just use a box….
I had a hawk that would perch in a tree in my yard for a while when it was around i only saw bunnies at night, he even took a couple swoops at my pugs, probably thought they were giant black squirrels, lol Anyway, it must have moved on cus now i see them in the middle of the day.mattcondonParticipantMay 1, 2009 at 4:00 pmPost count: 584
I wish my dog had it in him to eat baby rabbits whole and still alive. He’s way too soft… haha.
Backlash, did ya forget to put their floaties on before the swimming lesson or something? 😆
My neighbors at home have like 6 cats combined, I don’t think I’ve seen a rabbit all year at my parents’ (which is kinda weird because we live on a wooded area) even the red-tailed hawks aren’t around as much since the rabbits are gone and the hawks took out all but maybe one of our pheasants over the last few years. One the other hand, I haven’t seen any mice in the shed and my decoy bags, pheasant feathers n such aren’t getting ravaged anymore.AnonymousMay 1, 2009 at 4:21 pmPost count: 1908
Well since we are talking about baby rabbit removal, my grandmother used to get rid of the whole group, simply by putting a large cup of ICE cubes in their den. I guess baby rabbits cannot control temp very well and they will expire due to the cold and wet. as long as you can keep the mother away from moving them. Just FYI

any nest near my house and gsp takes it down. she starts w/ a point and then when nothing flies the baby bunnies or mice get it, starting w the nose flip followed by a digging maneuver followed w/ the retrieve, by that time any that arent already dead get released at my feet and I fling them a long distance w/ a stick or some other device. if they survive all of that, they deserve to live! mom usually comes back to no nest.oldstylelightParticipantMay 1, 2009 at 4:53 pmPost count: 1943possum catcherParticipantMay 2, 2009 at 2:49 amPost count: 121BacklashParticipantMay 2, 2009 at 3:13 amPost count: 3262LoneWolf130ParticipantMay 2, 2009 at 3:14 amPost count: 2855
My wife raises rabbits, and generally the lil guys will nurse once to twice a day. Other than that the mother will tend to stay away as to not attract any unwanted attention to the nest. I guess I don’t understand why all the rabbit hating either. We have a nice garden and have never had a single problem with rabbits in it.flyfishrParticipantMay 2, 2009 at 3:16 amPost count: 1448IA_JamesParticipantMay 2, 2009 at 10:14 amPost count: 65
