A short talk on rabbit safety. After leaving the nest and out on their own is the most vulnerable time for baby rabbits! Covered in the nest below ground they are more protected from lawn mowers and predators. Once out of the nest their defense is to just sit like a statue and only move as a last resort. It is very easy to run up on them with a fast riding mower or just moving fast – the noise of the mower makes them turn to a statue. You should inspect your yard for foreign objects like sticks and stones anyway before mowing so give it a walk-through for that and baby animals, especially if you haven’t mown it for a few weeks or longer. The little furry critters will thank you!
