Some argue the island might not be completely safe as there has never been any major decontamination of the whole island. It’s rumoured that there are several sealed locations on the island where workers reportedly buried gas when the war ended.

Yes, that should go together with hundreds of burrowing lagomorphs just fine.

I've got a theory.

Also, those are all domestic rabbits, so I hope she's luring them to the spay/neuter clinic.

I prefer to think she can summon an army of bunnies at will, and that she's on her way to becoming a reserve member of the Avengers.

Rabbits are generally unimpressed with humans, but they damn well know what rustling means.

Lots of coat variation there, even a black. I'd be surprised if you could get all those colours from a founder population of just eight animals... maybe they're getting the occasional top-up from outside?

A similar thing happened when my wife brought a bag of cat food to Recoleta Cemetery in Argentina. It's a bit more terrifying when you replace bunnies with feral cats.

The rabbits became strange in many ways, different from other rabbits. They knew well enough what was happening. But even to themselves they pretended that all was well, for the food was good, they were protected, they had nothing to fear but the one fear; and that struck here and there, never enough at a time to drive them away.

They forgot the ways of wild rabbits. They forgot El-ahrairah, for what use had they for tricks and cunning, living in the enemy's warren and paying his price?

ATTENTION ALIENS

You, who are reading this after the fall of man.

You, who have found this dark, sad world after we, the humans, have left it.

You see what happened to the place. You know we were at times cruel, shortsighted, greedy and horrible to ourselves and others.

But look at this video, and look at this thread. You see -- we were not entirely bad. And we wish the better parts of us could have overpowered the worse.

Bunnies aren't just cute
Like everybody supposes!
They've got those hoppy legs
And twitchy little noses!
And what's with all those carrots
Why do they need such good eyesight anyway?
Bunnies- it must be bunnies!
BUNNIES!

Watership Down is the one bunny thing I don't like. Don't like the book, don't like the movie.


My husband thinks that is totally weird.


(Oh, and for a minute I thought he was back on here with that demented comment upthread about the castiron skillet and tasting like chicken. Grrr.)

Yes, it's cool to watch. But what I see is a hoard of rabbits that have lost their fear of humans.

You know what that means. ATTACKS BY VICIOUS RABBITS. Just wait until Werner Herzog hears about this!

this one time my brother was pissed off about having to write a book report on Watership Down, so he configured Word to replace every instance of the word "rabbits" with "bunnies" as he typed. Years later, someone else typed something about rabbits and was very confused.

Rabbits can be scary.
My first pet, as an adult, was a rabbit. I expected the rabbit to sleep on my lap while I studied for the bar exam and nestle next to me while I slept. Well, first problem was that the fucking thing would find any exposed wire -- computer, headphones, lamp -- and nibble it in half like it was its life mission. When I tried to lift it out of its cage, it growled and tried to pounce on my hand to bite it. The rabbit's name, let's say, was Tom. I got a new job with a fearsome boss who was like Spock with a sarcastic streak, name of Tom. I had a habit of telling stories like, "Yeah I tried to sleep with Tom tonight and rolled over on him and he squealed like a dying a child" and coworkers were like 0-o.

Finally I gave Tom away after posting a classified. The kids seemed happy to adopt Tom. My friend waited after the whole thing to tell me she thought it more likely than not Tom ended up in a pot. You know what, I couldn't bring myself to be that sad.

And that's my scary rabbit story.

My kitty thinks you should be careful what you wish for. After we got a young house-rabbit, the cat's trip to the vet for the infected bunny-bite on his magnificent tail was no fun. Oh, yes, and the insatiable appetite for electrical insulation. Do you know how much a MacBook power supply costs? Also, the TV remote is approaching uselessness, what with all the missing buttons...

During World War II the island used to be a top-secret military site manufacturing poison gas for chemical warfare. Today, it’s completely overrun with cute, fluffy bunnies who are the island’s main inhabitants.

Its almost as if the universe has a sense of justice and a sense of humor.

Well, tame in the sense that they probably won't kick you to death if you a) keep your distance and b) don't come between them and a stale rice cracker.
