Hopping to freedom! Over 110 rare New England cottontails have been raised and sent out from @rwpzoo. This video shows Rhode Island Division of Wildlife staff releasing a rabbit on Patience Island. Most of the captive-reared rabbits have been brought here, and they're surviving well! This once-common rabbit is not the one you see on roadsides and in gardens, and is found in just five isolated populations across six states. #bunny #bunnies #rabbit #cottontail #cute #RhodeIsland #NEC #necottontail #video #instavideo(Credit: U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service)
