London, Sept 22 : A Brit woman, who discovered a live unborn hare in a dead rabbit, has raised the leveret by keeping it in her bra.
Cherida Cannon recalls how her labrador Teal chased and killed a hare, and she decided to make a nice meal out of it.
She says that the hare turned out to be pregnant, and its unborn baby's heart was still beating.
"The hare was so beautiful, I just couldn't bare to throw her away. I thought she'd make a nice meal so started gutting her," the Telegraph quoted Cannon, as saying.
It was her cleaner, Tina Rhodes, who noticed the unborn baby, while gutting the rabbit.
"I rubbed its chest and blew on it and dried it with a towel, then suddenly it opened its eyes and begun cleaning itself," said Rhodes.
According to the Daily Telegraph, Rhodes sister Margi Heath, of Upper Farringdon was made the caretaker of the orphaned creature, now known as Miracle, who fed it with a baby formula with a syringe.
"She stayed indoors with me. I put her in my bra to keep her warm, else she would have died. I slept with her and every time she was hungry she popped her head up," said Heath.
Miracle is now three months old and still growing.
"She's quite tame now. She has a lead we use to walk her with, and lets people stroke her, though she can tell if someone is a stranger," said Heath.
"I took her out and about with me so much, and even took her to local schools so the children can see her," she added.
