As Easter started this morning, at the Paterniti household, we let Bear out as usual in the morning. As we all looked outside, we had noticed he was standing protectively over this mess of dead grass. So I looked a little closer and I see something moving..........we try to get Bear in, but he would not come in NO matter what. Joe ended up having to go outside to get him.
Went out to see what it was..............there were 6 newborn bunnies :( When I went to check on them, 4 out of the 6 were bleeding. I do not think Bear was trying to eat them.......I really think when he was digging up the nest to figure out what was moving. I think that as he was digging he was throwing them and then thought he would be able to play with them.
When we got back from breakfast........Joe decided to take care of the bunnies because as we all know the mommy will not be back..........when we went out.........they were all dead :( I feel so bad, but I did not know what else to do. Bear wanted to go out and we had to place the babies somewhere else or else Bear would try to play or maybe eat them.
I fell awful :( I was worried about Bear for a while thinking something was wrong with him because he has been laying around the past 2 hours, but Joe knocked it into me that this is what he usually does at this time. I worry WAY TOO much about Bear :)
