Sorry, can't quite tell from your post, is she still within the garden or has she got out into the outside world? Either way, hope she returns to you very soon.

You have got to get her back in, is she still running around your garden? Tempt her with treats, get someone to help you. Get a torch

Right well you need to sit and wait until she comes out from behind the shed, then block the hole up so she has no where else to hide behind. Then catch her. Get someone to help you. You cant leave her in the garden unprotected as a fox might get her.

Could you put a carrier to block her exit, then poke her from the other end with a long stick (sweeping brush/ garden cane/etc?). Hopefully she'll run into the carrier and you can shut her in.

You REALLY need to catch her tonight because foxes will be looking for food as soon as it gets dark.

Good luck :thumb:

Then I guess that sitting & waiting is the only option..


Edited to add, How big is the burrow? If she hasnt been out long can you not reach in and get her? :?

I would block her so she cant get out, then just grab her- I know you may seem evil, but it is for her own sake1

I thought about that - put a towel over the hole then as soon as you see her come up, just catch her in the towel X

Block the ends of the shed, and then I'd just get the shed shifted so you can nab her...little minx!
Hope you catch her else you'll have a cold night sitting out!

I would definitely try the pokey stick/ carrier idea. Nigel got out a little while ago and went down the back of a neighbours shed. I couldn't get him out so I had to do that. If the stick won't move her, try stamping and banging, even (really mean I know) putting the hose down there. She'll be wet but it's better than eaten by a fox or cat (just make sure you dry her!)

Will she not even come out if you shake a bag of food, that will get Charlie tearing up the stairs as fast as he can when he's downstairs up to no good? Have you got anyone helping you to try and catch her? You really need to get her back in her hutch tonight. Can you put a load of tempting food in her hutch and sit out of sight- to get Poppy back in the hutch on a night at her own accord I have to put food in it then go back inside and wait until she's jumped back in then shut it up for the night? Perhaps try some weetabix with a bit of warm water so she can smell it, it's quite strong smelling.

Have you got her?

I would go spare with worry :(

On bonfire night I had a slight mental block and forgot Nigel was outside. He didn't ask to come in like he usually does so I assumed he was upstairs. About 10.30 I realised and went into a full blown panic that he had been frightened to death/fallen in the pond/escaped/run away/been eaten etc!

He was sitting under a bush at the end of the garden, and he wasn't even grateful for me getting him in! :roll:

They run away as you chase. w/ bunnies, the best way is to have them come to you. All you need is some treats, such as carrot leaf or dry mango, etc., your bun will come to eat it when you wave it in front of him

in my panic i forgot silly things like she loves carrots and her teddy lol till someone said shake a bag of food so i shouted carrot and held it as far down the side of the shed as i could reach and as she came out i moved back and then grabed her.

i wanted to use the cat next door she loves to play with him she chases him around the garden or lays in the run with him but they said he couldnt go out lol

i wanted to say a big thank you to you all for your help :wave:
