Giant bunny attacks veggies

Allotment owners have called in armed guards to protect their vegetables – from a rabbit.

The gigantic rabbit is so powerful it can pull prize leeks out the ground – and eat whole rows of onions, parsnips, and carrots.

It’s been compared to the ‘Curse of the Were-Rabbit’, the Wallace & Gromit film about a fearsome bunny that destroys vegetable patches.

Jeff Smith, 63, was first to spot the black and brown creature at the Mouldshaugh Lane allotments in Felton, Northumberland, two months ago.

According to The Sun he said: “It was massive. I thought, ‘What the hell is that?’ It’s no ordinary rabbit – we’re dealing with a monster.

“Its prints are huge, bigger than a hare – about the size of a deer’s. One ear’s bigger than the other. It’s a brute.

“The Curse of the Were-Rabbit was a film . . . this is the real thing.”

Plot holder George Brown, 76, vowed: “We will nail it.”

Marksman Brian Cadman, an assistant gamekeeper on patrol, added: “We’ve been told to shoot on sight.”
