Definitely send that photo to the DNR Area Wildlife office.

Might not be a bad idea to move away from the Superfund site under the power lines. grin.gif Kidding.

Hey OUTDOORS_GUY, Did you talk to the DNR about that rabbit?

Got to be the wildest thing I've seen in a long time.

Well what did they say?

Had a friend that had one similar in his yard, turned out it is some kind of fungus.

Its a desease they get from insects that bite. It starts with a P not sure what the name of the disease is. The horns are basically a wart. It is the same thing that gives humans warts. It can't be spread from the rabbit to the human. If you type in google rabbit with horns you can read about it. They say it is common for rabbits to have it but this is the first one i ever seen with it.
