I got to clse to a b aby rabbit a couple summers ago. Actually, didn't even see it. Man, I felt so bad. Didn't kill the poor little guy, so I took it to the vet to finish him off. I just did not have the heart to do it myself. Buried him in my backyard, and erected a nice little tombstone for him. Man that day sucked!
Sorry bout your hops, Mr. Turbucle.
