A Soldier and his Bunnies

When Joshua Bisner, a Marine corpsman living at Camp Pendleton, in California, was raking the volleyball courts near barracks on base, he found four baby rabbits in a hole.  Seeing that their mother was dead, he knew he had to act.

Parental instincts kicked in, and Bisner scooped up the bunnies and helped nurse them back to health, bottle feeding them for about two months before turning them in to a wildlife refuge.

“I grabbed a box, put a few old shirts into it and picked up the bunnies,” he wrote on Reddit. “I researched how to raise them and what to feed them. I made a nice box for them to live in and bottle fed them until I could wean them to eat the local foods.”

He documented his story with Youtube videos and photos, posting them on June 18. The next day, he also posted his story on Reddit, where it soon went viral, garnering nearly 3,000 shares and more than 1,100 comments.

His two Youtube videos have logged 138,000 and 102,000 views respectively, in just three days.  Before giving the bunnies up, he named the them Stevie, Raymond, Vaughn and James.  “It was a lot of hard work,” he said, “but I loved the bunnies.”

Happy Bunday ^_^
