Do hawks eat rabbit?

Roger_Paw said...

Why yes, hawks may on occasion eat rabbit but they're big and heavy so they'd go for mice and rats first. I'm glad about that because that rabbit is so cute!!

he/she looks adorable :)

Hawks have reportedly carried off cats (and small dogs) in NYC, so a rabbit's possible.

This bunny is the cutest!

Lisa, I know about that story and I can tell you it is ENTIRELY unlikely a hawk grabbed the cat. There were no witnesses so god knows what happened. There's no way a hawk could carry that cat or even try to. Especially with the plethora of rats, mice, squirrels, and pigeons in the area.

I once saw a hawk fly off with a homeless person's grocery cart, so there is really no telling what they can accomplish.

rabbits are the worst pets. all they do is kick you and scratch you ... and run away.
