You want strange? I live in Northern Arizona, I was raised working a small cattle ranch my grandfather owned. I have been around wild animals all my
life. Last week, I took my children to the a local swimming spot. We were driving around in the fields and I see a jack rabbit.
I get out of the jeep and walk towards it, it is alive and looks healthy, but does not run, in fact it just continues eating. My son then says, LOOK
BEHIND YOU! There, is another jack rabbit, not 5 yards from me, hopping towards me! My son walks to with in 5 feet of that one, and it made no attempt
to get away, it simply would move just out of his reach and continue to eat or watch us. I then looked around and another Jack rabbit was sitting
about 10 yards away watching the whole scene.
Now, all three of my kids are walking around, within 10 feet of these wild rabbits and not only did they not run, two of them started playing with my
children almost like a dog would, hopping away, then turning around and hopping between them.
So, we get back in the Jeep and move on, about a mile away, another Jack rabbit, so I get out and it just lays its head down and hides. I walk up to
it and it slowly hops a few feet and hunkers down again. This went on for about 5 mins, with me getting to about 3 feet away and it would move, it
never ran, and would eat while it was watching me. I do not think they were ill at all, they all looked healthy and well fed.
I have NEVER seen any kind of wild rabbit act like these did, not even close. This happend on 05/10/2008.
