Help!!!! Baby Bunny (2 weeks?)

I bought this dwarf baby bunny (owner said it was 2 weeks old) and I have NO IDEA how to take care of it.

I had a 6 week old bunny several months ago, but it died after only one week and I have no idea why.

So I am SUPER PARANOID this 2 week old bunny will die...

And this bunny hates me! It is really feisty and crazy and jumps around uncontrollably when I try to pick it up!

How should I handle it? What should I feed it? Does it drink water or milk? HELP!!!!!

Return it to its mother. A 2 week old bunny should be with its mother, thats why the other one died obviously. Dont be dumb, return it or this one will die.

... Are rabbits even weaned at 2 weeks?! It really needs to go back to its mom. Its probably terrified right now.
You should report that person to Animal Control or something for selling 2 week old bunnies. Thats just wrong!

"For the animal shall not be measured by man. In a world older than ours they move finished and complete, gifted with extensions of the senses we have lost or never attained, living by voices we shall never hear.They are not brethen, they are not underlings; they are other nations caught with ourselves in the net of life and time, fellow prisoners of the splendor and travail of the earth."

Selling rabbits that young is illegal in many states. 2 weeks is way to young for it to be away from it's mother - they should not be sold and away from their mother until they are at least 8 weeks old.

A rabbit two weeks old won't even be able to eat solid foods yet, s/he needs to go back to it's mother!

We are as gods to the beasts of the fields. We order the time o' their birth and the time o' their death. Between times, we ha' a duty. - Terry Pratchett.
