While clearing debris from storm, found these babies inside of my enclosed back patio, before releasing the little critters we snapped the photo. Spotted them near other adult rabbit days later. They are okay.

Hi JDMallory, these baby Cottontails are very cute. Were they in a dangerous situation that required you to move them? I would love to know a little bit more about your spotting.

Here at Project Noah, we prefer that spottings are in as natural state as possible. In order to avoid confusion and to help other users know more about a spotting, it's very helpful to provide some information in the Description area of your spottings. We try to discourage unnecessary handling of wildlife, since it often creates stress for the animals (which could be harmful to them).
