Photo hunter: Bad 'hare'



This is not really a hare, but I couldn't resist the pun. What's bad about it? Well, somebody thought it would be nice to release a couple of their rabbits on campus grounds. Couple that with the aww isn't that cute, and some rabbit feeders, and now the grounds look like this....

Each of the lumps in the distance is a rabbit, and all of the green spaces on campus look like this. While it may seem quite cute, I have to wonder about the diseases of such a population (breeding from a limited stock), if they've pushed the 'natural' fauna off campus (more natural than the rabbits anyway), and the irresponsibility of the original owner in abandoning their pets.

My labmate has a pet bunny. She says most of the released bunnies are from owners who didn't realize that rabbits go through an "adolescent" phase that last only a couple months then they are back to being gentle sweet pets. Apparently, this happens mostly in males. I know nothing about rabbits except they are stupid little vertebrates.
