yeah most animals seem to get abandoned when they get our sent on them, thats why people have to leave the animals be and can only tempt them when they want to rescue baby animals. i think all animals just think we are their enemy

That was pretty much proven false. A mother bird, or any animal, will not abandon her offspring after they have been touched by people. That was a myth perpetuated to make sure stupid children don't grab baby birds and crush them with their fat hands.

I can confirm this. A mother rabbit gave birth to some in a little hole next to my house. We touched them a bit cause they were trying to escape but the mom still came back. A week later they were ready to go out on their own.

I think it's just certain animals. I used to have a rabbit that would kill it's babies, but I don't think most animals do that.

Its actually a common occurrence among most rodents. Rats, Hamsters, gerbils, guinea pigs and mole rats do it all the time to make up for lost nutrients and if the are to many offspring to feed.

My grandfather used to raise rabbits, and he said the same thing. :\
