Tips for Catching a Stray
what you’ll Need
A bowl with water (strays are often dehydrated, especially in summer)
Food, such as rabbit pellets, leafy greens, and fresh fruit (ripe banana and grated carrot work especially well in attracting rabbits because of the strong scent as well as sweet taste)
If you have a rabbit of your own, bring some rabbit poop—the scent of another rabbit will often attract a stray.
A carrier to transport the rabbit
Strongly advised: three-foot tall puppy/exercise pens to corral the rabbit
when to look
Your best chance of spotting a stray is in the early morning or at dusk, when rabbits tend to come out of their daytime hiding places and look for food.
WHERE to look
If you don’t see the rabbit, look, check out the likely hiding places: under decks, bushes, trees, and cars.
Ask people who live or work in the area whether, when, and where they’ve seen the rabbit.
