Many months ago we took in a beautiful hare, after weeks of bottle feeding, she started to eat solids. Eating on her own was such a relief for us, as she soon started to pile on the weight and it was an end to hours of bottle feeding, not easy when we both work for a living!
Rearing baby hares (leveret) is not easy, they can get very stressed. As with all wild animals, it is extremely important not to imprint on the animal, so we have to minimise the contact to prepare for release.
After weeks of living with minimal contact from us, she was ready to go. She has now been released at a secret location where there are other hares and away from those that take pleasure in killing innocent animals for so called sport.
