hunting (not by humans...)

More on crow hunting.
Last night driving home from work i happened to see 4 crows surrounding
a rabbit which was madly running from one to another trying to get out
of the circle that the crows had formed.  the poor rabbit kept making
dashes to get between the crows, but they kept moving by jumping or
a short flight with wings widespread to keep the rabbit running.
i did not see the end of the fight, but the poor rabbit was kept
in the circle for several minutes and away from the bushes where
it obviously wanted to be!
