This cute wabbit has taken up residency in my freshly planted raised box with 60 Italian wax peppers. I have filled the hole four times, at first thinking it was Mr. Gopher. Came home today to this. He/ she took out 4 plants so far making a burrow, and thinks this is a good home.

My wife is not home from work yet---still have options! She will never know.;-)

I have no problem dispatching gophers or ground squirrels--but a baby bunny???

What would you do?

That cute little bunny represents a couple dozen by this time next year ;-).

Bang.

Oh, I was going to say get rid of it until I saw the itty bitty cutie little smoochie face! I think you better befriend him, hug him, pat him, and call him George! (or what about relocating him somewhere else....)

If he's tampering with your garden and killing plants then he needs to go. This is when cute and fuzzy turns into plain, old pest.

Haven't you ever had fried rabbit? It's good.

But seriously...either relocate the rabbit or take him down humanely.

Catch him and "transplant" to a field.

I would let it go until it grows up and has about a dozen more. One rabbit just isn't enough meat to take the time to cook. But 13 rabbits, now that is worth barbecuing!

I can't talk about it......just too awful. Whatever you do--keep the dogs away from the cute little bunny.

Whack it or loose the peppers.

Plan #1. Plant all the ingredients for a nice rabbit stew in a seperate garden ,then this fall ...well you know the rest .;)

Plan#2. Go all Elmer Fudd on its azz.

Need your help--don't think I have the "guts". This potential fried wabbit is an "hors d'oeuvre" at best.

Just walked out, and very cute bunny has relocated--about six feet.


Now what? Look at those ears;-)

As my favorite line from a North Dakota DNR biologist once said "well thats just a poor nesting decision".
I would save the peppers, dispatch him.

Just sayin what I would do - KILL heck see how accurate that new rifle is from 50 yds away or the new shotgun is the recoil on it really much lighter than the others I think you might need to check it with some 3 1/2 in turkey loads this way you wont have to tenderize him before you cook him :)

wait till she is at work and then tell her you noticed a hawk flying around lately - they really like young rabbits ;)
