We rescued a rabbit yesterday. It had gotten caught in the chain link fence. He was trapped at the hips and lay upon the ground suffering from worry with his eyes bugging out, as rabbits in stress will do. Fortunately, my daughter heard the rabbit’s struggle and alerted us. Necessary tools were located, and the fence was cut above and around his position so that his bands could be unravelled, and he could be released.
Evidently he was uninjured, because feeling the pressure gone, he bounded swiftly and surely away — white tail in the air, and in seconds he was gone.
Would have loved to have painted the little guy, but he was ever so much less calm than the rabbit above painted by Albrecht Durer in 1502.
