wildlife carers looking after tiny rescued
tiny rabbit which was rescued by a member of the public in her garden
is now being cared for by Burnham-On-Sea wildlife carers at Secret
World Wildlife Rescue in East Huntspill.
young rabbit had been caught by the ladys pet cat and brought
in from a local field where there are many warrens.
cats catch wild animals and break the skin they can inject infection
through their teeth, and the animal may need to be given antibiotics.
though, the bunny was uninjured and is now being cared for by Katie
Gibbs, one of the animal carers at Secret World.

her fur out to keep them warm as they are blind, naked and deaf."
the time they are fully furred with eyes and ears open and above
ground they are able to look after themselves although they

rabbits may look young and helpless but usually they are not far
from their warren, so there is no need for the public to intercept
them unless there is imminent danger from traffic or predators."
