Raising Rescued Baby Jackrabbit

Susan has been very busy with many young critters arriving at the Southwest Wildlife Foundation of Utah! This young jackrabbit came from a construction area. With so much activity around, there really wasn’t a safe place for the young one.

Young Jackrabbits are extremely problematic to raise and take much diligence, experience and knowledge to properly attend to. Susan was up all hours making sure everything was just right.

If you find a young rabbit or any other critter, please do not try to raise it yourself. It is best to contact a local rehabber, fish & game or the non-emergency police line.
