Found Bunny – Needs a Home!

Found Bunny Flyer


This Lions Head rabbit decided to pay my wife & I a visit yesterday.

We posted it on a few lost and found Facebook pages.

My wife took brought it in from the cold and placed it in a large box with straw, hay, and water.

She headed to the store for some rabbit food this morning.


Would you know of any 4H kids that might be interested and an addition to their brood? The bunny is currently at the Portage APL.
