Why? Were they pet hares?
Similar to the pigeon, the mother hare gave birth in one of my barns and the leverets were half tame around the house, mother hares leave them for extended lengths of time and turn up just before dark to feed them, one night she was late and they came out looking for her, coincided with the owl coming out and it came straight for one of them, I chased it off with a brush, took two swoops at it right in front of me.
Cant be sure but there was a very big raptor over highbury this afternoon ,think probably an osprey heading south for the winter.
