We found out that thump was a girl. Not far from us was a man who prep rabbits to be released
back to the wild. Vickie had nursed thump from a bottle and was able to get her weight to 187 grams. They usually release the rabbits at 120 to 180 grams. We dropped thump off and was placed in a cage which was place on grass to get her ready. They said thump would be released in 3 days, and that was what happened. She hopped out of her cage and into the brush, weighting 210 grams( just over 1/2 pound.
Vickie was told she had done the unthinkable by keeping her alive.
