About 9:30 pm my friends and I came home to my place. We went inside my house but we couldn’t find my mom. We looked in the back yard and then my sister yelled “I see her! I see her!”. She was in the yard across the street with our neighbour and my little brother trying to catch a bunny!
It was a little white bunny and my mom was crouching down chasing him. I was curious about what was going on so I ran over but my mom sent me back home because I could have scared the bunny and there were enough people helping. My mom was trying to help the bunny but it didn’t know that so it kept running away. The bunny belonged to the house across the street and its owners were camping so they didn’t know the bunny had escaped. He dug a hole under the fence and couldn’t find his way back to it.
Finally my mom caught the bunny, but he squirmed which made my mom drop him and then he got really scared. Then, another neighbour came to help. The neighbour brought his son which wasn’t much help because he moved too fast for the bunny which made it super scared and harder to catch. It was frustrating for my mom because she almost had gotten it and she had been trying for over an hour. She tried feeding it clover, lettuce, carrot and celery to get close enough to it so someone could pick it up. A second idea they had was trying to put a cardboard box over top of it to scoop it up. None of these worked because the bunny was too fast and not hungry.
After an hour and a half the bunny must have been worn out because our neighbor was finally able to grab him. He ran to the bunny cage and put it inside and almost dropped it a couple times! Then my mom locked it up and made sure it had food and water and the next day we checked on it to make sure it wasn’t too hot. When the neighbours got back we told them about our bunny adventure and they said thanks for helping the bunny out. They said we were nice people and we can check on the bunny whenever they’re gone. I really like the little bunny and I plan on visiting it soon.
