If you thought rabbits were just cuddly bundles of fun then more fool you. For underneath that cute, furry exterior is a ruthless psychopath just twitching to wreak bloody vengeance with swords and axes. Ask any academic and they will tell you, those who fail to learn from history are cursed to repeat it. Take these panels from medieval manuscripts which clearly prove giant killer rabbits did once roam the Earth battling humans for its control—and you thought Monty Python and the Holy Grail‘s “killer bunny” was a joke?
Yes, we were warned by these medieval writers long, long ago, and warned more recently by Bugs Bunny, and The Night of the Lepus—which as we now know, was not just a bad trashy B-movie horror but a guide to saving the world from giant killer bunny rabbits!
Rabbits lay in wait for the human to kill their dreaded enemy the dragon, before killing the brave knight.
The rabbits prepared for battle.
They were led by the evil killer Thumper.
The battle was bloody.
The giant killer rabbits showed the humans no mercy.
Even as they slept, humans were not safe.
No one was safe.
Even royalty died at their bloody paws.
But civil war broke about between the rabbits and dogs.
The faithful dogs fought bravely against the giant rabbits.
But it was of no use, as the rabbits had superior numbers and hunted down the dogs.
Poor Fido died a horrible death.
The rabbits ruled the land.
Until the giant snails destroyed the rabbits’ food supply. But the snails were eventually wiped out by the humans.
