The Wildlife Rehabilitation Center at Wisconsin Humane Society is asking the public to be aware of wildlife while taking part in outdoor activities after a litter of baby bunnies were saved from accidental incidents.

On Facebook, WHS said it  saved five babies from a fire pit after they were accidentally doused with lighter fluid, and another baby after its nest was destroyed by a lawnmower.

Since the babies in the litter and the lone baby saved elsewhere were the same size, the single bunny was added to the litter.

“These babies are a great reminder to keep an eye open and check your yard before activities like lighting fire pits or mowing the lawn,” WHS said in the Facebook post. “We absolutely understand that these were accidental situations - it's simply that time of year when yard work tasks and baby bunny nests overlap, but your diligence in being observant and checking first can save lives! “
