Bunnies Missing In Action
I haven't seen the cottontails in a while, at least the ones near the farm house. I know something has to have happened to scare them away and I imagine I know what it is. As I said before the grandson of the owner is fixing up the house to move in. He has been spending more time out there and it is looking nice on the inside. He is starting to install a tall fence enclosing the house and a rather large area to the east. It looks like he plans a large garden so you know what that means. Bunnies eat vegetables. One day while grandson was working I put some lettuce and odds and ends under the old water tank. I think he went out to see what I put there and he must have shot at the old water tank because it is starting to come down piece by piece and no bunnies in sight early in the morning. I'm thinking he shot to scare them away while they were eating and they haven't been back unless in the dark of night. I hope he didn't have a big pot of rabbit soup. I'm sad to see them go and I'm glad I enjoyed them when they were close. I can't say anything to him as the place is not mine but probably will be his someday. I don't pay the lease, John does, and it doesn't include rabbit safety. I understand having a nice garden and not wanting it to disappear and it certainly could with that amount of rabbits. Now I hope my turtles don't vanish into thin air.
