Picture almost looks like it is Flemish Giant breed however size can be deceiving due to the size of the person holding the rabbit

Sounds like what happened in Woodland park late 60's, early 70's. Rabbits of every kind, color, every where. Alot of them weren't shy.

It happens all over the place. Last spring/early summer a virus went through a lot of the San Juans and Whidbey Island killing lots of the ferals. It killed a few of the owned rabbits out there as well. Cancelled some shows and 4-H events because of it. Same thing happened up on Vancouver Island 2 years ago. It's now happening down in the southwest part of the country but this time it's affecting the wild cottontails and jackrabbits too. That's going to be bad long term.  The strain we had here was manageable because it wasn't affecting the wild cottontails. WSDA put a quarantine on the islands and it worked, at least for now. They were actually checking on the ferry docks to make sure no domestic rabbits were coming or leaving the San Juans or Whidbey. I heard it killed all the feral domestic(European) rabbits at Fort Casey.
Bet that will put a crimp onnyhe Fox population out on San Juan...

In archery we have something like the way of the superior man. When the archer misses the center of the target, he turns round and seeks for the cause of his failure in himself.
