    I am visiting a homestead that is overgrown with grasses, especially mugwort. Doing scything and grass cutting someone came across some baby rabbits below ground staring up, so they put the three in a plastic tote box and fed them yogurt, ground flaxseed, etc.. Two of the three already died. I would have just put them back in the grass to fend for themselves, any thoughts on what should be done with the last survivor?

    The rabbits should have been left in the field.

    I would knock it in the head and eat it (not much meat there, soup it), or feed it to the dog. It would also make good trapping bait if youve got the freezer space.

    It was dead when it was put in the box.
