Baby bunnies in the nest, drawn by Belinda Baardsen, July 28, 2013, CO, “I have picked up the babies – won’t my scent keep the mother away?” No – the mother will not abandon her babies just because the scent of a human is on them. If you are doubtful, then wash your hands and rub them in the grass and soil around the nest before gently replacing the babies, making the nest up as it was before you disturbed it. http://www.wildrescuetexas.org/wildrabbit.html
