I will endure the cold.
Will you endure my gaze?

Thanks, Liz and Stan!

Unsuspecting Traveller: Hmmm, there appears to be some sort of "breadcrumb" trail here in the snow. I wonder where it leads...
Bunneh: !

[The next day]
Newsreader: Our top story, another hiker has gone missing on the snowy mountain trails. Police are dismissing reports of some kind of "abominable snowbun" as nonsense...

It doesn't look wild bunny. :( or are we just calling "wild" bunny.

Liz said...

haha! Oh, he's a wild bunny all right. They live all over our quiet neighborhood. They are pretty used to humans, which I would normally say is a bad thing, but everyone around here loves them!

Aw ... such a face! Love that 2nd photo. *I* haven't seen one wild bunny this winter -- I don't know how they survive [Lake Erie] but they do, thankfully. I did witness what appeared to be "chipmunk warfare" in the snow the other day though ... which was highly amusing!

He looks quite like Kevin, the Lost Bunny of the Apocalypse on the cartoon Prickly City.

The heat generated by this bunny's disapproval is creating a microclimate all around him. The snow covered the yellow wooden divider before he showed up.

Tom said...

Is that a sneer in the second photo? If so, ouch!

Ijon Tichy the Nth said...

... that is a case of wild disapproval :-)

It's the killer bunny of Caerbannog's American cousin: the killer bunny of suburbia.

Wild Bunny lures the unsuspecting human in with his incredible cuteness and then with an evil look in his eye he pounces.

Wow. That bunny looks like an escaped domestic rabbit!! It has such round cheeks and isn't slim like the ones I see around. (Although I think those may be hares, technically...) Either way, SUPER cute and SUPER disapproving.

janet2buns said...

@mum of critters: Oh yeah! That's a great pic. Are your dogs still Riena's "enforcers"?

Warren said...

In the second pic, that bunny is all, "I sense you human."

mum of critters said...

Hey J2B - I had to re-home Riena and yes, she still has her yorkie enforcers and they take their job very seriously!

That is not a wild bunny, at least not a North American wild bunny. That is a domestic bunny that is without a home. In most cases homeless domestic buns die slow painful deaths and are in need of rescue, even if its just to be taken to a shelter where they'll eventually be put to sleep painlessly and peacefully. Its very rare for outdoor domestic rabbits to survive for any length of time, that seems to be the case here but please if you see a domestic bun outdoors in whatever season please please please contact your local rabbit rescue agency or group and let them know that there is a domestic bun outdoors that probably needs rescue. Domestic buns belong in the homes of humans, they've never learned to survive in the wild on their own even if the wild is a city or suburb, its very rare for them to be able to survive on their own. But I got to admit it is very cute and looks healthy and most extremely disapproving.
