Fluffy Bunny Overload

Since Easter is coming soon, I decided to feature photos of rabbits in this week’s post. In addition, I will share the story of Rabbit Island in Japan.

Rabbit Island (Ōkunoshima)

According to Wikipedia, Ōkunoshima “is a small island located in the Inland Sea of Japan in the city of Takehara, Hiroshima Prefecture.” Once the site of a poison gas plant, it was later converted into a park after World War II. Ōkunoshima is also known as Rabbit Island because of the numerous rabbits that roam free on the island. They were introduced to the island when the park was developed.

The rabbits are friendly toward humans, and they pursue tourists in hopes of getting food from them. Here is a link to a YouTube video of a “bunny stampede” on Rabbit Island:

Before I go, I want to let you know that I will be taking some time off from my blogs. I am trying to finish up a difficult web design class that I am taking this semester, and there are some other things that I want to do. I plan to start posting again in a few weeks.
