Should I stay or should I go?
There are a number of Wild European Rabbits in Calgary, and this is just one of them. Always feels strange to see what look like pet rabbits wandering loose in people's gardens and around a neighbourhood. This one was seen on 23 July 2014, when I went on a botany walk at the Erlton/Roxboro Natural Area. It was busy eating the grass by this tombstone and then it took a good look at me before continuing to feed. 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.

Looks like we may possibly have thunderstorms and rain the next few days. This morning, it's 24C (feels like 29C) and it is supposed to go up to 28C (feels like 33C) this afternoon. Yesterday, it got up to 32C in the afternoon.

This is a long weekend here in Canada - Monday, 4 August 2014 is Heritage Day. Have a good, safe holiday, everyone!
