PORTLAND, Ore. – Is this
bunny too big to believe?
Our newsroom was baffled by this photo when it was sent to us by the Oregon
Humane Society. No, the picture hasn’t been photoshopped – that’s really a
Flemish giant rabbit that lives right here in Portland.
Staffers wanted to take advantage of the upcoming Easter holiday to introduce
folks to Wally, who will be up for adoption sometime next week.
“The public can also get to meet his bunny pals and perhaps take one home.
Enjoy Easter candy while learning the joy of rabbits as pets,” the humane
society news release said.
