"Unfortunately cottontails are extremely difficult to successfully rehab when they are this young," Jasmine Fletcher Glaze, licensed wildlife rehabilitator and founder of ASPTL, told The Dodo.
But then something kind of amazing happened. Glaze's husband accidentally found a cottontail nest right in their yard. And Glaze had an idea.
She took two of the tiny babies over to the nest, and just snuck them in. Unfortunately the wild mom couldn't handle any more babies than that, and the other four rabbits didn't make it on their own.
