The Jackalope (Lepus-temperamentalus) is one of the rarest animals in the world. A cross between an extinct pygmy-deer and a species of killer-rabbit, they are extremely shy unless approached. None have ever been captured alive. The jackalope is an aggressive species, willing to use its antlers to fight. Thus, it is also sometimes called the “warrior rabbit.”
Jackalope's are known to appear when the moon is full and are known to sing to herds of cattle to lure them away.
One of the first white men to encounter the Jackalope in North America was a Cowboy named MacFarlane who lost a herd of cattle under his watch to the Jackalope. MacFarlane claimed that there were similar species in his native Scotland, that were also known to lure away cattle herds during a full moon.
Jackalopes have also been sighted in Germany where it is known as the wolperdinger. In Sweden, a related species is called the skvader.
Known by the ancients as “deerbunnies”, it wasn't until the early 1960's that the modern more fearsome “jackalope” name was adopted.
Jackalopes possess an uncanny ability to mimic human sounds. In the old West, when cowboys would gather by their campfires to sing at night, jackalopes would frequently be heard singing back, mimicking the voices of the cowboys. Jackalopes become especially vocal before thunderstorms, perhaps because they mate only when lightning flashes (or so it is theorized).
When chased, the jackalope will use its vocal abilities to elude capture. For instance, when chased by people it will call out phrases such as, “There he goes, over there,” in order to throw pursuers off its track. The best way to catch a jackalope is to lure it with whiskey, as they have a particular fondness for this drink. Once intoxicated, the animal becomes slower and easier to hunt. Modern Jackalopes also seem fond of chewing through Harley Davidson oil lines.
It is written that you can extract a Jackalope's milk as it sleeps belly up at night. The milk is believed to be medicinal and can be used for a variety of afflictions. The truth is these creatures are aggressive and unpredictable, and should not be provoked for any reason!
The government wants you to believe they aren't real, but there are many who believe. The evidence is mounting!
