Big cat print ? No, just a rabbit...

It's amazing just how many photographs are submitted from witnesses who genuinely believe they have photographed 'big cat' paw-prints, but which turn out to be impressions made by rabbits. In case you're wondering what a rabbit print looks like, the accompanying photo proves, how easy it can be for sincere witnesses to simply get it wrong. Note the lack of a main central pad and also either side of the two central impressions, the two long impressions which are made as the rabbit squats on its rear limbs. The two central pads are made by the rabbit leaning on its forelimbs.
