Large Goofy Bunny

Bunny was behind a fence -- and the area wasn't too 'inviting' for us to get a photo. The Bunny was resting among a few other oddities and pieces of junk. And, yes, he's still creepy -- and the fact that there was a coffin among the junk next to him? Creep-tastic!

Sounds like the Bunny became part of a Halloween display. Maybe the fence will come down when the coffin is packed away.

I live about 15 minutes down the road from this bunny. It is still there and still creepy. I think it is funny that it made an attraction list! I'm not sure if the owners okay with people in their yard,. They don't have a sign up saying so....

The owners have written to us to say that visitors "are welcome to take pictures with him [the bunny] so long as you do not trample the yard or try to sit on him."

He's easy to miss so watch your odometer. There's a convenient pull off to park and pick your way delicately across the owner's lawn. The owners have thoughtfully placed tree stump "seats" around the bunny for photo ops so it looks like you're having a woodland tea with the big, grinning, slightly creepy bunny.

Big bunny.

Giant Bunny - Jack

We bought the bunny that was in front of the Hillbilly Restaurant when it closed. We live about three miles on down Hwy 62 toward Eureka Springs. He has been re-painted and sits happily in the yard. You are welcome to take pictures with him so long as you do not trample the yard or try to sit on him.

He originally (so the tale/tail goes) was a float in the south. Then he moved to Arkansas and became a greeter at Gateway. He has retired now, but is willing to sit for pictures with admiring fans.

The giant bunny statue (now painted white) moved in April. I saw it on a trailer parked out in front of someone's house. It is now in their side yard -- you can still see it from 62 just a few miles east of the Hillbilly Restaurant. It looks very happy surrounded by the Spring flowers.
