Well, Life Isn't Like Disney Kids

Some creature came in and ate the baby rabbits in the back yard yesterday. (See a couple of post below for the earlier part of the story) The suspects include A cat, but the nest seems like a lot of food for one, and they don't travel in packs. Crows seem the most likely diner. Vultures are another possibility; we see them flying high over head quite often.

I intended to use the nest to teach the kids about how creatures grow. Instead the kids learned that, with the exception of a few bacteria, all living things kill other living things to live.

I'm proud of their ability to understand that bunnies don't just hop around and sing with orphaned deer.
