Wild European Rabbit

Wild European Rabbit
There are a number of Wild European Rabbits in Calgary, and this is just one of them. Seen on 23 July 2014, when I went on a botany walk at the Erlton/Roxboro Natural Area. Right next to this area is a Cemetery - funny, I do tend to see Rabbits in cemeteries, either these Wild European Rabbits, which come in all sorts of colours, or the White-tailed Jackrabbits.

The town of Canmore, near Banff, in Banff National Park, has had a problem with these Wild European Rabbits. They attract Coyotes and other wildlife into the town. They were going to do something about this problem, but I don't know if they ever did.

The colouring on this one looks much like a cat's colouring. Something I haven't seen before in wild rabbits, though admittedly I haven't seen many wild rabbits. I remember reading about Canmore's problem with the Rabbits but like you I haven't heard anything recently about their efforts.
