Watch This Rabbit Kick a Snake’s Ass to Save Her Bunnies.
Rabbits are prey animals, so mothers avoid spending their time close to their young other than to nurse them. A nest of baby rabbits without a mother close by does not mean that they are orphans! If you want to make sure the bunnies are OK, check them in the morning and see if they are warm and round-bellied. This means that they are being cared for and the mother is probably alive. It is a myth that rabbits will abandon their babies once humans have touched them.
