There was a RABBIT at school today!!!!!!!

Tuesday, September 21, 2010

I drove in and parked around the corner at the back of school. Went to my room to drop my stuff. Went up to the office to sign in, say hi, etc. Walked back out to say good morning to the assistant principal - who was looking down the hill at the parking area and the grass nearby. There was a brown and white rabbit nibbling on the grass and hopping around, while the night security guard and a few students tried to chase the rabbit into a box.

Rabbit didn't seem to mind the people being so near it, but he wasn't about to get into the box. He hopped one way, the people followed, he'd hop the other way, they'd scurry around.

Turned out that the rabbit didn't belong to anyone, and he (she?) eventually hopped into the bush (low forest?) across the driveway - it's probably several acres of wild, uncut bush, with lots of good stuff for bunnies to eat. The music teacher said he's seen grey rabbits hopping around in the early morning or evening - so we guessed there must be a bunny family living in the bush.

He was so cute! One of my students said she had a bunny as a pet, and she wanted to catch this one. However, the bunny returned to the wild.

There's so much excitement at my school, LOL!

    No one is sure if rabbits are native to the VI, or if these are escaped pets who have adapted to living in the wild. I know one girl wanted it for a pet - not sure about the others.

One student later, a little boy, told me it wasn't a rabbit, it was a mongoose. I see mongoose all the time at school. But this was my first bunny!

    What a sweet story! I am very much the nature geek myself: gives me lots of pleasure.

    Isn't it funny how an encounter with nature can make everyone's day?

    Did they want to catch it for a pet? It would have missed its family. Especially if it was mum or dad. better to leave it alone.
