Pet bunnies are illegal in the fair state of Queensland. Mr Tchotchke once made the mistake of asking about this at a pet shop and was harshly chastised by the shopkeeper with the reasoning "they destroy infrastructure!"
So that may have something to do with why I'm so enamoured with them. You know - you always want what you can't have. I don't know if I'd move to Tasmania just for the bunnies, but they seem to have more than enough to go around.
We saw this little guy in the side yard of a house in Swansea on the east coast. Very Peter Rabbit no?
Here's Mr T staring down a cooped up junior detective on the front lawn of the Swansea Police station!
Here's a city dwelling bunny back down in Hobart.
And me chasing after him. Yah I'm really subtle.
And this relaxed chap was in the gardens at Cascade Brewery. One too many pale ales I suspect.
Ah bunnies - the forbidden fruit.
