    New England cottontail - USFWS.

    Why would a rabbit, the epitome of prolific breeding, be considered for protection under the Endangered Species Act? Today, this rabbit's range has shrunk by about 86 percent. Its numbers are so greatly diminished that it can no longer be found in Vermont and has been reduced to only five smaller populations throughout its historic range.
