EPHRATA, Wash. — Most of a group of 20 endangered rabbits that were reintroduced to the wild with great fanfare last month have been killed by predators, state officials said. Only four of the rabbits released on March 13 remained at the Sagebrush Flat Wildlife Area as of Tuesday, said David Hays, pygmy rabbit coordinator for the state Department of Fish and Wildlife. Hays said two males were removed earlier this month and will be returned at the end of April. The other 14 rabbits are believed to have fallen victim to predators, mainly coyotes, but also hawks and owls, Hays said.

I didn’t follow that either.

I’m fascinated with the fact that the state has an official pygmy rabbit coordinator.

Outside of Buggs Bunny, has there ever been a smart wabbit? Rabbits are food chain items.

Bunnies are evil and the spawn of Satan. So henceforth, bunnies are sodomites. They wage war against ptarmigans and killed billions of them.

Bunnies are evil and are bent on conquering humanity. They showed their true colors in the Ptarmigan/Bunny War. Billions of ptarmigans was killed by bunnies.

In related news, nobody at the Rabbit Fanfare PR Agency knew the Bible verse that says, "Pride goeth before a fall" and in even more related news, unfortunately the carnivores that read the news release thought the 20 were being referred to as FINE fare.

There is a small town north of here named “Chicken” (Alaska) because the settlers could not spell “Ptarmigan”

Yes, lots of them. Kinda small and scrawny though, takes at least two to make a good meal!

Ptarmigans saw that first hand in the Great Ptarmigan/Bunny War. It was a bloody smackdown and act of genocide. Leporius and his filthy henchbunnies, Bugs Bunny, Greg the Bunny, Buster Bunny, Bucky O’Hare, Peter Cottontail, Thumper, Bunny Rabbit, and Easter Bunny are behind it.
