Do two post mean we have to put comments in both places?

awwww, poor guy

hare today, . . .

Too many "new" twinkies.

He has big pointy teeth!

Not funny. It's a sick animal.

Twice now I have looked at this headline and misread it as "The Rabbi of Doom". Maybe it is time for new glasses.

It's a man eating rabbit with fangs.

From Wikipedia:
The cottontail rabbit papilloma virus (CRPV), or Shope papilloma virus, is a type I virus under the Baltimore scheme, possessing a nonsegmented dsDNA genome. It infects rabbits, causing keratinous carcinomas, typically on or near the animal’s head. These tumors can become large enough that they interfere with the host’s ability to eat, eventually causing starvation.

Sightings of CRPV infected rabbits may be the origin of the "jackalope."
