This is always such a hard decision, But it really is for the best if he is a wild bunny.

I rescued a wild baby duck that was nowhere near any other ducks. I got attached immediately but the rescue I took him to informed me of everything they're going to do & how they rehabilitate. They take baby steps with them & keep moving forward if the baby is doing well. So I'm sure you can also inquire about his rehab & find out how they do it. I found it put my mind at ease.

Best of luck to you & little Gordon!

I still have Gordon right now, the first rehabber I contacted has not responded past my initial email. They are "Wild Rescue Inc., Texas"

They asked for a picture so they could try to identify him and then would give me further direction. I sent the picture but there has been no reply. In the meanwhile, I also submit an application to NTRS for a bunny adoption, explaining the situation to them as well.

Gordon is healthy, eats and poops like a horse, and doesn't appear to be particularly fond of domestication... I believe the next step is to release him in a hospitable environment, but I was looking to consult with somebody before that, so that I wouldn't simply be sending him into his doom.

Sorry for the double post - 

I talked to a rehabber recommended by a user from this forum and we concluded together that Gordon was as healthy and ready as a baby bunny could be for release. So I have released him in an appropriate area nearby where he will have plenty of cover and food, and even be with other rabbits. It just rained here in Texas so the environment is extra hospitable at the moment. I was going to snap a goodbye photo, but Gordon bounded off so quick I couldn't even capture a shot! 

Good luck Gordon

I thought it would be hard, but I was happy to return him to nature. I can tell he will be happier. When I let him go he ran in a big circle, jumped through a little chain link fence (I hadn't intended that), and straight into the brush. Lost track of him absolutely instantly, hahaha.

We are looking into adopting a new bunny to care for with NTRS. I can't wait to introduce whoever it is.

I'm really glad to hear that it all worked out! I wish Gordon all the best in the wild, and I wish you all the best in your search for a bunny. It sounds like you will be a wonderful bunny caregiver. I can't wait to meet him/her =)

Thank you so much for taking him in and providing him some love and a kind environment! It's not an easy thing to let him go, but he is where he belongs... and now you have room for an amazing domestic rabbit. I can tell you'll be a great bunny parent! And Gordon will always have a special spot in your heart.

Happy travels, Gordon!
