How hopeless were this lot. I have no problem with people not recognising a baby rabbit if they have no experience with them but most of the people making wild guesses in this article should have been a little more knowledgable!
What an amazing range of guesses gathered by the vet Ralph Fogleman trying to prove the farmer Harold Heaston, couldn’t know more than he did. Folgleman didn’t do himself any favours insisting it wasn’t a rabbit.
The professor of zoology, Dr Derbyshire, was the smartest of the lot, saying he wouldn’t care to comment until it had grown up.
I bet rabbit stew tasted a little sweeter every time Mr Heaston had it for the rest of his life.
