Last night when we went to take care of the animals, Wifey got the bright idea to clean out the rabbit pens. She wanted to put down fresh straw so the Bun-Bun's would have a nice warm and dry bedding for the upcoming night in the teens temps. Our 2 doe's live in a cage with a front entrance, so Wifey dove in head first to pull out all of the old wet bedding.
Now this took many repeats, and the rabitts were getting more agitated every time. She was almost done when one of the bunnies jumped over her arm and crawled under her armpit, ending up right in front of her face. She stopped what she was doing to talk face to face with the bunny. When all of a sudden it turned around and let fly with a spray of urine.
Dinner is at 6pm and anyone who likes rabbit stew is invited.
Actually it was only a threat. The rabbits are all ok. At least for now. But Wifey was upset to say the least. Our four bucks gave her no trouble, but at least their cage has a top lid for access.
Just another lesson, down on the farm.
Sorry no pictures. Not that the Wife would have let me post them anyway!
