UPPER FARRINGDON, England, Sept. 21 (UPI) -- A Englishwoman who discovered a live unborn hare says she kept the baby rabbit alive by carrying it in her bra.

The woman, Margi Heath, 57, of Upper Farringdon said she kept the leveret warm that way, feeding it baby formula with a syringe, The Daily Telegraph reported Sunday.

"She stayed indoors with me," Heath said. "I put her in my bra to keep her warm, else she would have died. I slept with her and every time she was hungry she popped her head up."

The hare, named Miracle, is now a tame 3-month-old rabbit, the newspaper said. She was found alive inside the womb of a pregnant hare killed by a dog.

"She's quite tame now," Heath said. "She has a lead we use to walk her with, and lets people stroke her, though she can tell if someone is a stranger."
