|It is important to understand rabbit behavior. Rabbits are the most common prey for predators in nature. For this reason, their instincts tell them to run if something comes after them. Do not give a young rabbit too much freedom too soon.|

If you have to chase them to catch them, it sets up a bad precedent and the rabbit will run from the feet (that is all they see) coming after them as a means of survival. The best way to treat a new bunny brought home is to handle it as much as possible and for at least 20 minutes at each handling.
