  • History:

    Oddly enough, cottontail rabbit numbers actually increased with the European settlement of North America. More specifically, the introduction of domestic farming and abundant food sources caused an explosion in cottontail numbers throughout the continent. As you can guess, they are currently classified as an animal of least concern by the IUCN, and their numbers are not declining.

    Present Status While Eastern cottontail rabbits are preyed upon by many predators, they are such prolific breeders that their populations are not threatened. In fact, if predators did not eat these animals, their populations would quickly outstrip the available food sources because they reproduce so quickly.
