WHAT ARE RABBITS?

Eastern cottontail rabbits are the most common rabbit species in Wisconsin. They have brown to grey fur with long ears and a short, fluffy, white tail that resembles a cotton ball. We will never have a shortage of rabbits because they breed multiple times a year and produce large litter sizes. Rabbits love to eat anything green. The Eastern cottontail rabbit is about 1 foot in length and weighs around 1-3 pounds.

Rabbits will eat anything green, especially your garden vegetables and flowers. They love to eat asparagus, collard greens, lettuce, cabbage, tomatoes, and much more.

Rabbits are found throughout Wisconsin in marshes, grasslands, swamps, and urban areas. Rabbit burrows are often found in the middle of yards, especially in tall, thick grasses with a few leaves or grass over the top.

The breeding season for Eastern cottontail rabbits occurs from February until September. Rabbits will breed at least 3 to 4 times a year and produce 1-7 kits in each litter. Baby rabbits are called kits and are born blind and hairless.

The most common problem with rabbits is their eating habits. Rabbits will nibble on all sorts of plants, especially garden vegetables and flowers. If not controlled, a family of rabbits can wreak havoc on all the greenery in your yard. Rabbits also can be infested with ticks and fleas.
