I've seen many with notched ears, one with a notch so deep it nearly sliced 
the ear in half.  This population of Desert Cottontail lives in a patch of 
Blackberry vines and I suppose it would be easy to get an ear caught in a 
thorn while running from a predator.  Thanks for looking and commenting.
