Just the mention of Jack Rabbits gives me the shudders.  In Eastern Oregon desert/steppe country the population goes through cycles, and when at peak a drive down an off-the-pavement road at night can be a fright with Jacks bouncing every which way.
 
Not only are they a horrendous nuisance, they also tend to harbor a substantial population of fleas.  Bubonic plague is endemic in Eastern Oregon counties, and in the high population part of the rabbit cycle spreads easily among the Lagomorphs.
 
"Fwied Wabbit"refers only to those left behind a rapidly advancing range fire as far as I'm concerned.  Ugh.
 
Cottontails found in the iris patch are another matter.  Who can resist them?
