See a Hare, Leave it There!
As winter comes to a close, we want to send this important reminder: See a baby hare, leave it there! Both Snowshoe and White-tailed Prairie Hares will be having their babies soon. Hares are born fully furred and with their eyes open. They can hop around within hours of birth. It is the strategy of hares to leave their young for long periods of time under bushes and in the grass. This is normal and helps to protect the babies from predators since young hares have no scent. Mother hares return to feed their young as little as twice per day. Baby hares will freeze when threatened, this is a normal response. Most baby hares are not orphaned and will have best chance of survival with their own mothers.
