Here are two sites which may help you:

You will need a good hutch and of course straw for bedding. But do please try releasing the bunny at least once again, as wild rabbits do not always settle as pets.

Many blessings to you for saving this baby bunny! If the bunny still won't leave after a few days - then he has made his choice! Once he becomes domesticated, then he might not survive in the wild. The next few days are crucial. So you may have acquired a pet!

Please come back soon and let us know the outcome.

i really dont like to see any animal caged, especially wild ones. im not willing to turn him loose for him to die either. i will do what ever it takes to insure that he can live a long, happy life. im not understanding why he couldnt survive on his own with all the other bunnies i see everyday in the grass, the xmas tree grove and eating the carrots i put out there everyday. could you please explain to me why he may not survive? I really dont know a thing about rabbits, i have horses... thanks

Well, once animals get used to being fed, they can lose the instinct to fend for themselves in the wild. But provided he hops off in the next few days he should survive. But if he still stays with you and won't run off, you have a pet!

Even if he does run off, he may still come back to visit...

Keep in touch.

Thanks for letting us know. He probably just needed a few days to recover after being attacked.
