Rescued Rabbit

Little Bunny Foo Foo,
Hoppin' through the backyard
Eating up the green grass
And jumpin' in the pool....

I happened to check the pool skimmer before heading work. Sure enough, there was a lizard in the basket. I dumped him out in the yard to play and went to return the basket. I was surprised to find a baby bunny (jackrabbit?) in the skimmer struggling to keep his head out of water. He seemed like he had been in there a while. I managed to get him out with the net but he was not moving much. He was breathing, his eyes were open and he was able to hold his head up - but he was worn out! I had to go to work and I left him in the shade with some food and water.

He was gone when I got home. Most, or even all of the food was still there. Since the scene wasn't too disturbed I'm assuming nothing had him for lunch and he just hopped on home!
