Brownish, speckled fur with a short white tail, hence its name “Cottontail”. Eastern Cottontail rabbits are very shy and prefer to hide.
The only wild rabbits I saw around Montréal are the eastern cottontail rabbits. I will update this section once I have spotted another species.
Although common on the Island of Montreal, they are difficult to spot. The only time I saw this species was near the airport along a rarely used pathway leading into an undeveloped area. Look for them along bushes and forests into open areas.
