We had a house bunny when my son was growing up. Bunnies are ill-tempered
angry creatures who stomp their feet a lot. We spent a lot of time laughing
at the rage our bunny showed over everything!

That said, carrots and any other fresh crunchy vegetable should work with
the hay. Tuck the cage in a sort of hidden area to let the bunny get the den
sort of feeling. It may take a day or 2 but it will work. And expect a very
angry bunny when it winds up in the cage. Lots of foot stomping and throwing
itself around.

Good luck!

Try putting hay and carrots in the box, and place it near where you saw him
come in, if you can get him.

I had rabbits growing up and they LOVED hay and carrots.

This is equivalent-to-Friday, isn't it?

At my new house, the entire back yard is a professionally landscaped garden.

It being spring[-ish] up here, hundreds (perhaps thousands?) of plants are
just starting to peek above ground. The yard has a chain-link fence all
the perimeter, and apparently the previous owner also ran a three-foot
of chicken-wire all the way around the bottom perimeter.

The only part they appear to have missed is getting the resident rabbit on
the OUTside of this arrangement. The critter is in rabbit heaven, but he's
laying waste to all the tender new shoots and sprouts that were supposed to
become a lovely garden this summer. (At least, I HOPE he's a "he"...)

I do have a live-capture trap (metal box with spring-door), but I can't
imagine what I could place inside for bait, given that the entire yard
is a smorgasbord.

Unlike the previous owners, I don't have any energetic little yappy-dogs
to chase the rabbit. So he has no reason to run. He literally sauntered
when I tried chasing and waving my arms to herd him toward the open gate.
Ever seen a rabbit sneer? I have. I didn't think anyone could sneer
while simultaneously wiggling their nose, but apparently it's not that hard.

Anyway, despite his lazy lifestyle and abundant free food, I really
don't think I have the patience to wait for his first coronary.

Waddaya got?
