Turns out they misidentified the predator so their modifications didn't prevent some additional losses. They took further measures and trapped and relocated the predator which would no doubt buy them some time to further fortify the housing should they choose.

Additionally they experienced previous losses of rabbits to weasels--another predator attack that they thought highly unlikely to occur to housing they thought was sufficient to protect against. The poster doesn't say whether measures were taken to prevent further losses after The first rabbits were killed, but didn't say they weren't either. Not did they state that more rabbits were purchased to be housed in the same setup with no regard to possible future loss.

Plus, since the OP is their daughter,we are getting the story second-hand and have no idea what actual measures were taken, the amount of concern felt by the owners, nor the exact timetable over which the losses occurred. It seems unfair to judge these people.

LOL
My argument? I dont have an argument in this thread let alone in that post.
That was a question.
Curious where you got that they misidentified the predator? I didnt see that part.

My apologies for making too many dots to connect.........↓

:→ I don't normally put quotes around statements that I'm making, but I guess smoking that stuff could make me do funny things.  I thought that this was fairly clear and consistent with the other comments about being part of the cycle, part of the ecosystem, part of the predator/prey circle as I stated in my posts before heading off on this tangent.

Alas if that is not radiating abundant clarity, I have to conclude that we communicate on different levels.  And while I would love to engage in further repartee, this grows old and tired as re-quoting posts in the same thread fails to entice, the riposte are less than engaging I find my attentions drift to other threads....
I will endeavor to be less obfuscating in my posts, though perhaps I will fail, but you have to actually read the entire post or I can't be held accountable.
