OK, so they’re not really rabbits- they’re Arctic hares. And they aren’t really invading, they’re just hoppin’ around eating grass, THINKING about invading. They’re sneaky that way.
While working in Thule I noticed a few unusually large rabbits hanging around. These hares had strange little smirks on their faces like they knew something I didn’t.
That’s hatred on his face.
So I started taking pictures. One day there were four rabbits- then the next ten.
Erik the rabbit whisperer
A week later there were herds of rabbits over a hundred strong. Erik, Ben, and I drove out to the ice ramp and spotted a herd of nearly 500.
Of course no one believed us. Herds of giant rabbits in the Arctic? So on our day off I took a few of my naysaying co-workers on safari and sure enough we found a herd- not the biggest but a large one nonetheless.

There are going to be a lot of Arctic foxes next year- maybe herds of them!
