Description

At Heritage Park there was this lone rabbit sitting under a picnic table. I thought Jack Rabbit at first but Calgary seems to be out of their range and it didn't look much like a Snowshoe Hare so am taking a chance that someone left their grown-up Easter bunny there.

"Calgary seems to be out of their range" ... actually, the jack rabbit is ubiquitous in Calgary's green-spaces. They provide a year-round food source for urbanized predators, such as coyotes and great-horned owls, and even the occasional northern goshawk.
