Not long after I saw him as I left for work yesterday, the kids over there caught and caged him. Their father remembered seeing a rabbit in front of our house a few times and came over to ask if we were missing one. So Max is back in the yard, and the gate is even more rabbit proof. I need to spend time on that to do a proper job.
And he would have gotten away with it, if it weren't for them meddling kids.
