Even if she did right by saving them from the cat, if she hasn't taken them to a wildlife rehab. She is NOT doing the right thing.

sorry but i agree with Ambieruns10

its a nice thought saving all the wild animals... but its wrong. its the natural way. preditors have to eat too (not necisarly your cat) but preditors in general.

you guys have NO faith, i havnt heard her say they have died yet, it has been at least a week and if she was doing it wrong theyd be dead........babys are sensitive after a week of being treated wrong....they would die and they havnt..........so go push your no faith openions down someone elses throat.........

Stepping in as a mod here ...

I don't think anyone was trying to be hurtful or judgemental ... it isn't even a matter of faith. Someone asked for advice & advice was given. We may not always agree with each other & that is what makes us human- we are all entitled to our own opinions ... BUT we must remember that it is often hard to read the tone of a persons post when you can't hear the emotion behind it ... Personally I believe everyone was just trying to be helpful - not hurtful & look out for the best interest of the animal.

With that said- we need to remember that sometimes it is best to agree to disagree & walk away rather than stay & argue & add fuel to the fire.

I will let the discussion continue, but please from this point forward ... try to keep it civil

The baby bunnies are fine. I took them to the DNR at the Indiana Dunes and they told me that they'd find a good home for them until they could be released. They're going to let me know when they're going to release them.

Someone here mentioned something about the mother sensing human contact with the babies. I read that is incorrect. They are okay with that, it's just when the mother comes once or twice a day to feed the babies, if the babies are not there, she relates that to danger and doesn't come back. One should never ever disturb a bunny nest unless under the exception of the nest being in severe danger. If in danger, the nest should be moved to a safer location that is very near the original spot. The babies need their mother's and it is very hard for an inexperienced person to raise them.

Even if you think your doing something for the best, most of the time its not.

I hope that you did take them to a re-habilitator. I gave you a link to a list of ones in Indiana.
There's hardly a correlation between a wild animal that's part of the food chain and domesticated animals, such as dogs and cats destroying wildlife.
Also, I'm guessing her backyard is smaller, because it's fenced in. So I don't think she's going out through the woods and saving baby rabbits
