Can you spot the rabbit?


Spot the rabbit

Not a good photo I know…. taken from far with a cellphone.

I don’t find rabbits, they find me! Now if I believed in dark psychic energy I could spin you a story of the supernatural here. But I don’t. I believe in coincidence.

This little one has come to live in the bottom of the retaining wall. I take him a carrot 2x per day plus a bowl of pellets but of course there are grass and twigs to eat too. I am this time round not trying to tame him, although I would love to cuddle him. But he is safe where he is. He knows me by now but I am not trying to touch him. I want him to know some 2 legged beings are nasty and he should avoid.




Did you know?


Gauteng’s top tourist attraction is one of numerous lion farms in South Africa that breed the big cats for the canned hunting industry and make money from its spin-offs like cub petting and volunteering, says an animal activist group.

“(The Lion Park knows) that volunteers and tourists would never visit lion-breeding facilities if they were told upfront that the cubs that were petted today were destined to be sold for canned hunting,” says Chris Mercer, the founder of the Campaign Against Canned Hunting.

Mercer was reacting to a recent CBS 60 Minutes exposé, which revealed that the Lion Park in Lanseria bred lions to ensure a supply of cubs year-round. When the lions reached maturity, they were shipped out to canned hunting operations because they were too dangerous to be near tourists.

The Lion Park said this week it planned to take legal action against the show’s producers.


Lion Park owner Rodney Fuhr conceded many of his lions ended up at hunting facilities, but said he would stop the practice.

“This whole thing about canned hunting… I think it’s grossly exaggerated,” Fuhr said in his interview.

How about hunting canned people then Mister Fuhr? You can be first, and I will shoot.
