looks like a dwarf bunny. black and white in color how can I rid it of Fleas as I cannot get close because it's feral.


Unlike cats; released domestic rabbits, transition back into domestication very well. As I write this there is a rabbit sleeping on my bed, who was released in to a neighborhood a few years ago. Domestic rabbits do not do well in the wild.

The very best thing you can do is capture the bunny and get it into the local shelter system. See One of my three pet bunnies jumped out of the hutch and we can't catch her for some ideas to catch the rabbit. Depending on where you live there may be a local rabbit rescue who can assist.

Once the rabbit is caught it can be treated with something like Revolution which will also treat other parasites.

The rabbit can then go on to live a long and happy life in someones home.


Put out some Daminix and hope that the rabbit finds if and uses it as nesting material?

Wild animals have parasites. That's the nature of nature....

    Feral DOES NOT EQUAL Wild, nor does a released domestic equal natural. Sep 19 '16 at 12:32
  • Fact remains, an animal living outside on its own picks up parasites. The most you can hope for in this case is a temporary reduction.

    :) while your point is valid, it is kind of like putting on a seat belt as you plummet over a cliff, after driving off the road and before you hit the bottom. The ride to the bottom might be a bit safer, but the outcome is the same and it really doesn't change the timeline. Sep 19 '16 at 16:46
  • Not arguing, @jamesjenkins, but unless your point is that the original question is unrealistic -- which I don't disagree with, though there is a faint chance the damminix might do the requested job if the OP is willing to spend the money -- I'm not sure about the relevance...?
