Big Rabbit

A giant sized rabbit like the one pictured above was terrorizing a U.K village a few years ago by performing nighttime raid, leaving behind giant paw prints and destroyed carrots, leeks, onions, and turnips.  It’s just like the Wallace and Gromit film, The Curse of the Were-Rabbit.  How did rabbits get this big?  This one is the size of a mid-sized dog!  I’ll tell you what, if I saw something this size in the alleyway near my house I would be terrified for myself, to hell with vegetables!

Rabbit experts say the culprit could be an escaped giant domestic rabbit. Some pet breeds can grow to more than three feet (one meter) in length.  England holds the record for largest rabbit in the world.  The continental rabbit pictured here weighs in at 35 pounds (15.9 kilograms) and measures 3 feet, 6 inches (107 centimeters) long.  Originally bred for their meat, other massive breeds include the British giant and the Flemish giant.  I had no idea that there were rabbits this big.  Big ups to Dieter for sending me the link.
