Hartford has a robust and thriving population of natural wild life existing within its city limits. Pigeons and squirrels are common and can be seen in all parts of the city. Rats, while unwelcome, can also be found in the city. In fact, one specific rat can be seen regularly at city hall.
While somewhat less known, the West End Brown Bunny is also an important part of the Hartford ecosystem. Subsisting primarily on grass, garbage and the discarded marijuana seeds of resident UHa students, these majestic lupine creatures can often be found scampering through backyards in the West End and shaking small children down for their lunch money.
What should you do when you discover a West End Brown Bunny? An old Hartford wives tale suggests that every time a bunny is photographed or videotaped, its soul is stolen. So get your cell phone cameras out and send us your bunny pics.
