Catching a rabbit is a terrible idea if they get scare they could die of fear also it could have rabies if you really want a rabbit then start to save up some money

I have a 7 year old daughter who started raising a rabbit via our local 4-H program. This is a great "get-started" book about rabbits. Still need to get a book about your specific rabbit, but for the basics it is a good quick reference guide.
