Interesting. Never thought about it but it appears they don't have much problem. I think most animals can swim to a certain extent, especially short distances.

I was really hoping it was a mink or a rat though...but yes pretty cool cause I thought they'd just jump over it...took me 40 years to learn a rabbit will swim LMAO!

We have a large rabbit down this way...not a hare, but a rabbit and it is referred to as a Swamp Rabbit, often found in wet areas. I'd have to think they swim very well. I enjoyed the video.
