Rabbit Island in Japan is either a dream come true or your worst nightmare

Yeah. I’m not so sure I’d be ok with hundreds of rabbits leaping their way behind me. But the girl in this video is! The tiny island of Okunoshima, is sometimes known as Rabbit Island, and there are a few theories as to why there are so many bunnies around. One theory is that there was a secret army base in Japan during World War II and ‘it’s believed rabbits were introduced for the testing of poison gas’.

Looks like many escaped, though. Another theory is that schoolchildren on a field trip released eight of the animals back in 1971 (and we all know how rabbits can…reproduce). Who knows why they’re on the island, just as long as they stay that size and without poisonous bites, I’m cool with this.
