You will probably not believe what you see! This is a real horny rabbit!
This rabbit has a rare and gruesome disease triggered by the cottontail papilloma virus (CRPV), also known as Shope papilloma virus.
When infected, an animal gets tumors to grow on or near the animal’s head. If they get too large, the animal, in this case a rabbit, will die of starvation.
This monster rabbit was first observed in Mankato, Minnesota, early june 2013. It was named Frankenstein.
The video clearly shows monster spikes sticking out of the rabbit’s head.
Rabbits that contract the virus have often been the source of stories about the mythical ‘jackalope’, which is a rabbit with the antlers of an antelope. Illustrations of horned rabbits have appeared in scientific books such as the Tableau encyclopédique et méthodique from 1789.
