Can you keep wild rabbits?

There is a super cute baby bunny in my back yard and I want to catch him.
Is that horrible?
would it be like a bunny from the animal store?

  • I wouldn't Zoeysmom, he has a mommy bunny to take care of him,, sometimes wild rabbits will have a heart attack from being caught. You don't know if he is sick,,go to the pet store and get a bunny that has been raised to have human contact!

  • No you wouldn't be able to hold it and play with it like pet rabbits it will always be wild. I would let it be.

  • I once heard from a rabbit enthusiast that if you find a "cute little bunny" in your backyard, it might well be someone's pet and may need some help. Wild rabbits are apparently not cute. Is there a small animal rescue or animal control you could call for advice? I don't advocate taking in a wild rabbit, but if it is someone's pet, it won't have the skills to survive in the wild. Also, I've heard that cats can give domestic rabbits a slow, awful death.
