Most of the news videos aren’t in English, but I find that part of the charm. Something about having almost no idea about what’s going on but that people still like rabbits.

Also, a related but slightly off-topic short documentary: Hop, Jump, And Play from North Metro TV about the Minnesota Companion Rabbit Society.

I heard someone burned down their protective totem at Gävle before it was able to develop into an effective ward.

I'm Danish, and this is the first I've ever heard of this. I guess it can't compete with garden tractor pulling (the mad 'sport' of choice round where I'm from, seemingly).

I wish this was a bigger thing! The rabbits seem to enjoy it and it's great exercise for them. As far as pet sports go, it's pretty great.

There's also some great organizations popping up in the US too... check out Rabbit Hopping US and AHARC (which is chartered by the American Rabbit Breeders Association).

(A "kaninhop" in Swedish would be more like this. For the sport, see kaninhoppning, or for more nordic variants kaninhopping and kanihyppyä.)

Honestly, I thought I was going to see videos of people jumping over rabbits.

My favorite rabbit competitor is Kokomo, who has a very sensible way of getting through obstacles.
