When Buns Stampede!!!

The only thing you can do is leave ‘em a huge bag of carrots and, um, get the heck outta the way. Japan, natch.

Kudos to Allein S., Jennifer A., Amy H. and Karen F. for submitting.


  1. Night of the Lepus in real life! :o

    This looks like my rabbits when they know I have a banana chip.

  3. I sent this in, too! I saw it on Daily Bunny today, guess it’s gone viral. I love the little black bun bringing up the rear.

  4. And I just came on here to submit this video! Bah, someone beat me to it!

  5. *stunned, awed silence*

    World of Wrascally Wrabbits

  7. How terrifying! Quite the hare-raising experience!

  8. Ah yes…. Ōkunoshima.. Japan’s Rabbit Island. A truly magical land for lagamorph lovers. It was originally used to create and test poison gas for WWII. When the war ended, the scientists left and released the test rabbits into the wild. While not wild rabbits, per se, they are feral but friendly. They are such an adorable, fuzzy mob!!!!! But please, never release a domestic rabbit into the wild–they do not have the instincts of their wild cousins and cannot avoid predators, parasites, and/or starvation.

  9. When I first watched this I didn’t know whether to scream in fright or squee.
    Then I saw buns on their hind legs begging en masse for treats.
    I squee’d. In my pants. I am now ded.

  10. Packing my bags now and leaving for this island straightaway.

  11. I hope that lady has some hare remover ..

    I was afraid there would be a backstory like that. Absolutely everyone involved in WW2 has a lot to answer for. Some more than others, of course, but nobody came out with their hands clean. That’s what happens when you’re involved in the single most destructive conflict in the history of our species. :[

    Cute bunnies, though.

  13. I want to be mobbed by rabbits.

  14. Jealous! :-)

  15. From Wikipedia: “Many rabbits live on the island. When the island was developed as a park after World War II, these rabbits were intentionally set loose. Many rabbits were used in the chemical munitions plant to test the effectiveness of the chemical weapons during World War II; however, those rabbits were killed when the factory was demolished. According to Murakami, the former director of the poison gas museum, the current rabbits have nothing to do with those that were involved with chemical weapon tests.”

    So apparently these rabbits are not direct descendants of those from the WWII facilities, but from rabbits brought in afterwards. Still, SO MANY CUTE BUNNEHS!

  16. That would be heaven. Almost as much fun as being stampeded by a pack of pom puppies.

  17. You know in Monty Python’s Meaning of Life, how that man got to choose how he died? Chased by topless roller skating women? For me, it would look much closer to this. Any ending that involves “mobbed by bunnies” will do.

  18. My dreams have come true. My own personal rabbit island for camping surrounded by fluffies. Even a golf course for my boyfriend. Until the buns turn it into dinner anyways… You can see the grass all tore up too! Nomma nommas!

  20. Was anyone else reminded of Monty Python and the Holy Grail?
    ‘Run away! Run away!’
