    Jackalope: Fact or Fiction?

    [CENTER][IMG]http://scienceblogs.com/scientificactivist/upload/2006/07/jackalope.jpg[/IMG][/CENTER]

    I just got back from Canada where we stayed in a lodge for a few days. In the bar they had a number of animal heads hanging on the wall, including this thing. At first I thought “WLF Darwin? That was one lonely buck who first ravaged a poor bunny in the forest.”

    I asked one of the employees who acted as a forest guide/trapper if this was a joke played on city slickers. He said no. Next to it were pictures they’d taken and an article saying it was officially recognized in 2001. Obviously I can’t find a trace of this anywhere. The lodge was fairly highly priced, so I find it odd they’d go that far into making their customers feel like idiots.

    Apperently there's a form of virus rabbits can catch that can give the impression they have antlers.

    I think it’s total BS but badly want this beast to actually exist. :rockon:

    What say you Hampsters??

    What? Does riding a bunny with antlers seem so far fetched?

    :P

    If you happen on one of these rare creatures in the wild asleep, roll it over gently and milk its little titties. The milk is known to be a cure for all manner of illnesses, including genetic defects such as gullibility. :yes:
