Fire ants cover rabbits

One of our female rabbits "Thumper" had 10 hairless pink babies last night. By the time we checked on her this morning all her little bunnies were covered with fire ants. We hand picked off all the ants and moved them inside were it was safe. On the living room floor, Kristine quickly made a safe bunny nest and placed them inside. The momma bunny was stressed out due to the ants and the new move....but soon calmed down and started nursing again. We have our baby rabbit formula and bottle ready in case of an emergency.
