English term or phrase: scramble like a rabbit in the brush
aucun en particulier. Meilleure traduction pour cette expression? Merci...

French translation:détaler comme un lapin
Explanation:
Expression courante en français = fuir sous l'empire de la peur. Je ne suis pas certain qu'il soit utile de traduire in the brush car cela ne correspondrait pas à l'expression idiomatique française.

Hope it helps
