Grower Jeff Smith, 63, said: "This is no ordinary rabbit. We are dealing with a monster.
"It is absolutely massive. I have seen its prints and they are huge, bigger than a deer. It is a brute of a thing."
Anyone else think Jeff might have a still in his allotment shed?

Reminds me of the Black Panther that used to live in the woods between our house and The Old Fox.

It was about a twenty-minute walk from home to the Old Fox. Interestingly, the Panther must have been nocturnal, because no-one ever saw it on their way to the pub - it was only ever seen by people on their way home from the pub !!

May be a relative of the one that attacked ex-President Jimmy Carter? :D
A small group of allotment holders have now clubbed together...
Nice to see that it ain't only we Canadians that club together. Expect to see a teary Brigette Bardot and the siliconed Ms Pamela come sailing over the horizon any time now. ;) :E

Rogue Rabbit Mercy Plea

Animal welfare groups have urged allotment holders to find a non-violent solution to the saga of a giant rabbit which has been ravaging their vegetable plots.

Residents in the Northumberland village of Felton have threatened to shoot the rabbit, which is munching its way through leeks, parsnips, cabbages and carrots.

But the RSPCA has called for a more humane solution, urging them to trap it in a cage and release it elsewhere.

The over-sized raider has been dubbed the Were-Rabbit after the Oscar-winning Wallace Gromit film.

The movie features Wallace, the boss of humane pest control firm Anti-Pesto, inventing a device to suck up the creatures in an elaborate vacuum machine.

But the allotment holders have sought a more traditional solution, posting armed guards around the site with a shoot-to-kill policy.

Jeff Smith, 63, said: "This is no ordinary rabbit. We are dealing with a monster. It is absolutely massive. The first time I saw it I thought to myself 'what the hell is that?'

"I have seen its prints and they are huge - bigger than a deer. It is a brute of a thing."

But an RSPCA spokeswoman said: "We would urge people to explore all humane alternatives first. The rabbit is just following its normal behaviour.

"People should look to good husbandry to keep them out. Shooting it for doing what comes naturally doesn't seem fair."

And the People For The Ethical Treatment Of Animals said: "It seems ridiculous to demonise this animal for doing what it can to survive."

I had a similar problem in my garden. I left a ham toastie in one part of it and a cheese toastie in another.

I'd heard that mixing my toasties can be fatal to rabbits.

"."

That's probably what his wife said when she saw the, er, rabbit, as well. ;)

Mind you, it's a good job the bunny doesn't live in Wales as given it 's size that would have made it a very rare Welsh rarebit----sorrrreeeeee !!!!

It's what we do in NZ. When something is iconic to a particular town, we put up a big colourful statue of it.

Here's a few more:
