It's kind of ironic, this bunny drama happening right around Easter...but the kids are loving it:). On Saturday, we discovered a huge rabbit (hence, the name 'monster bunny') hanging out under our porch. He is huge. And gray. And I'm pretty certain he is not a wild rabbit.
He is pretty comfortable close to humans...however, he doesn't want you touching him. Or catching him in big containers. (Yes, we already tried that.) I thought about calling the animal people to come get him...but I don't know what would happen to him then...and he seems very happy just hopping around our yard.
I'm not much of a bunny person...We had them when I was younger and the "dwarf" bunnies grew to be the size of small dogs...(that's what you get when you buy "dwarf" bunnies from a feed store and not a petshop)...Anyways, they were very scary. And bucked their huge feet at you like crazy. So, that kind of ruined the idea of sweet pet rabbits for me...but it's kind of fun watching from a distance. Monster Bunny is our new distraction:). Philly left asparagus out for him this morning. And we have a rabbit trap set (I know that fact that we have a rabbit trap on hand leaves you with the impression that our necks, well, have a slight tint of red to them;)...And, if we catch this big sucker, we'll find him a nice home. In a rabbit hutch. Where he probably belongs...but cleverly escaped from:).
Meanwhile...I just have to be careful that the monster doesn't meet our beast:)...
That might end badly. For the beast, I mean:)...Yes, the bunny is that big:)!!
