This is a picture of an Eastern Cottontail rabbit Sylvilagus floridanus. She used to live in my yard until she was killed and eaten by a stray cat in our neighborhood. She was a gentle creature and had become tame enough that we could approach her within ten feet before she fled.
I shot these pictures of her over a 30 minute period when she consumed several Goatsbeard and Dandelion wildflowers.
Stray cats and dogs present not only a health hazard to humans but they will prey on wildlife and reduce their numbers. Please spay or neuter your pets and confine them to your property. That way, we can have bunnies and birds to enjoy.
