A little morbid, but my rabbit died last night, and since the ground in my yard was frozen I could only manage to a dig a foot deep. The rabbit is not wrapped in anything, and there is roughly 3-4" of soil covering him from the 'highest point' where his body begins.
This is in a neighbourhood town. The rabbit presumably died of old age (10 years old at this point) because it suddenly started losing weight last year.
I do not want raccoons or other scavengers digging it up, but the thought of me having to dig him up is just as scary. What should I do, if anything?
