Warrior Wabbits of the West

"The Jackalope is an antlered species of rabbit, rumored to be extinct, though occasional sightings of this rare creature continue to occur, suggesting that pockets of jackalope populations continue to persist in its native home, the American West. Thought to be a cross between the extinct pygmy-deer and a species of killer-rabbit, they are extremely shy unless approached. None have ever been captured alive.


The jackalope is an aggressive species, willing to use its antlers to fight. Thus, it is also sometimes called the "warrior rabbit."


Jackalopes possess an uncanny ability to mimic human sounds. In the old West, when cowboys would gather by their campfires to sing at night, jackalopes would frequently be heard singing back, mimicking the voices of the cowboys. Jackalopes become especially vocal before thunderstorms, perhaps because they mate only when lightning flashes.


When chased, the jackalope will use its vocal abilities to elude capture. For instance, when chased by people it will call out phrases such as, "There he goes, over there," in order to throw pursuers off its track. It is said that a jackalope may be caught by putting a flask of whiskey out at night. The jackalope will drink its fill of whiskey and its intoxication will make it easier to hunt. It is said that jackalope meat has a taste similar to lobster.


Jackalope milk is particularly sought after because it is believed to be a powerful aphrodisiac (for which reason, the jackalope is also sometimes referred to as the 'horny rabbit'). However, it can be incredibly dangerous to milk a jackalope, and any attempt to do so is not advised. A peculiar feature of the milk is that it comes from the animal already homogenized on account of the creature's powerful leaps."




These guys are not to be f#@ked with. They're as silent, clever and as deadly as ninjas. You're looking at a juvinile of the species (Lepus-temperamentalus). His elders are off looking to avenge some recent bunny abuse by some female suspects (I swear to God it wasn't me who snitched, Rachel and Shell) going by the aliases "Alice."
