Halloween Bunnies !!!

It’s Halloween ! yeah! And you thought you would be safe with bunnies…nooooo!!!!! lol

It appears throughout history these cute lil fluffy things have been the inspiration for horror stories to make you shiver.

Our little angora bunnies are always sweet, even feeding them after midnight does not turn them into little gremlin bunnies nor are they particularly blood But, saying that, I would take care if I were you! Especially on Halloween night !!!

Here are some rabbits you really need to avoid no matter what !

There is a Gargoyle rabbit known as the Vampire Rabbit of Newcastle. He perches above a solicitor's office behind St. Nicholas' Cathedral in Newcastle, England. No one knows why he is there, or what makes him glare with such evil.

Then, one of my favourite B Movies the night of the Lupus! The 1972 film Night of the Lepus is the definitive monster bunny movie. Plagued by too many rabbits, a community turns to scientists who experiment on the rabbits to keep them from reproducing. An escaped rabbit reproduces anyway, and the results are huge carnivorous mutants that eat anything in their way, including humans!
 Just imagine that happening now to all those bunnies exposed to the deadly myxomatosis and calici viruses…Another reason not to mess with biological warfare !

And who could forget another majestic HUGE bunny in the Wallace and Gromit movie “Curse of the Were Rabbit ! oh wait! I think I see some glaring eyes staring directly at me from the forest ! AAAAAArgh!

Heard of thee Bunny equivalent of Dracula? It is the fearless Bunnicula!!!!
Bunnicula, the Vampire Rabbit was a 1982 animated ABC Weekend Special based on a series of children's books by James Howe. Bunnicula was a family pet who sucked the juices out of vegetables. Not all that frightening in reality -unless you're a vegetable. Nevertheless, Bunnicula can sprout bat wings, fly, and move things with the power of his mind. The books are a great read especially now ;-)

Then there is the  Killer Rabbit of Caerbannog, who guards the entrance to the cave of Caerbannog in the movie Monty Python and the Holy Grail. Yes, he may look like a innocent little fluffball, but he can bite your head off before you even realize it, as he did Bors, Gawain, and Ector in the movie. Run away! Run away! The Killer Rabbit also appears in the musical Spamalot. You can even buy a Killer Rabbit (  ! ann killer bunny slippers, which  I think might make it actually impossible to Run ! Run awayyyyy!!!!! lol

Not all killer rabbits are fictional...really !  THis is not a joke...Heard of the Swamp Rabbit?

In April of 1979, president Jimmy Carter was fishing near his home in Plains, Georgia when he was attacked by a swamp rabbit! The rabbit swam toward the president's boat and tried to board.
Carter had to fend it off with an oar. Press secretary Jody Powell is quoted from his 1986 book The Other Side of the Story: The animal was clearly in distress, or perhaps berserk.

The President confessed to having had limited experience with enraged rabbits. He was unable to reach a definite conclusion about its state of mind.

What was obvious, however, was that this large, wet animal, making strange hissing noises and gnawing its teeth, was intent upon climbing into the Presidential boat. After some objected that rabbits can't swim, a picture of the incident was produced, clearly showing the rabbit swimming. The rabbit's political affiliation is still unknown.

So, apart from these killer rabbits out there to get you, I can vouch for our little fluffy ones..they have not tried to suck my blood or attack me.

Also, just so you know, their fluff is totally friendly to humans and can even protect you from evil bunnies out there in the wild! Wear a bunny jumper and the zombie bunnies walking out in the dark night, will think you are one of them!  Fluffy angora bunnies save lives !
