The Bunny Militia Is Back!

This is a TDB fast breaking news flash. I'm your on-the-spot reporter Chester L. W. Spaniel.

This morning I found evidence that the Bunny Militia has been infiltrating my back yard. First, I found a half eaten pear on the ground. The bite marks looked bigger than those of the Evil Squirrel Cartel, or the Conniving Chipmunk Consortium members. 

The scent was off too. 

After some sniffing, I discovered a sign that this crime was probably committed by an operative of the Secretive Bunny Militia!

After a thorough exploration of the yard, I concluded that the suspect was no longer on the premises.

No bunnies found in the compost pile. 

I will now take a moment to tell you about the Secretive Bunny Militia. This time of year the young ones have to pass their initiation test before they're accepted into the Militia. The test is always a potential suicide mission. A lone bunny must squeeze itself through any narrow gap it might find in the fence on the perimeter of my territory. Then, it must steal some kind of food, usually dandelion stems or hawthorn berries, and then make it out of there alive. 

Long time readers will remember that I personally have caught several bunnies of all sizes in my yard. In fact, I'm a very proficient bunny hunter, as every cocker spaniel should be. 

Here's a big one!

I caught three bunnies for YOU! 

I'll be on heightened vigilance mode for the Secretive Bunny Militia now. Wish me luck! 


  1. You are one mean bunny hunter. We are embarrassed to tell you this but the damn cat is the best hunter at our house. mags

  2. How dare those evil creatures maim your precious pears! You are quite the bunny nabber! Good work, Chester!

  3. The Bunny Militia has been slow on arrival here this year, but they have come out lately in great numbers. So far Mom hasn't found any nests in our yard, but there sure is a lot of pellet evidence that the militia was practicing shooting out those pellets:)

  4. Me and Brinley chased a bunny today!

  5. I point at the bunnies but never do anything else and they just laugh at me and hop away. You do good work protecting your yard.

  6. You are quite the detective Chester. Did you sample those "bunny raisins"? We love to grab some before our pawrents find them.

  7. You are doing fantastic job. Keep those bunnies out

  9. Oh Chester! That is some kill count dude! Very impressive! We don't gots bunnies here...I thinks that would be tons of funs to try and catch one of those! I just have to stick to rats and squirrels and possums, and raccoons. (I haven't actually seen a raccoon, butts Ma has, so I have to take her word for it ☺). I also hear that those bunny nuggets are tasty...can you confirm?

    Hugs a very impressed kitty Madi your bfff
    PS how dare he leave bunny pelts in your yard.. grounds for serious action

  11. Hi hi hi! Ojo here! I had no idea you were so accomplished! I am a bunny hunter too! My record was three in one one day. Is that your record too, or are you even more of a master than me? I also removed a squirrel from our Yard the other day by making it Dead. I think I would like to come to your house, I could help with the bunnies! Also, I see they left you an offering - poop! Yum! Does their offering make you less likely to Dead them?

  12. OMGoodness, C. You actually CATCH the bunnies!!??!? Yikes! I'm pretty sure I'm afraid of bunnies, but mostly, if they're nearby, I'm oblivious....

    Love and licks,

  13. Chester, you mean you killed those little buns...? We don't have them here. Except in cages as pets! Only thing I ever killed was a bug, once!

  14. I have nabbed a few of those rodents too...and oft sampled their goodies. Sheesh at least there are not as many bunnies as there are those chocopoop-drops...or are there?

    Deer doo-doo is tasty too, and woderfur to roll in...ahhh.Nice and odoriferous!

    Hope those rodents keep out of your pear tree...well, at least leave the dropped ones alone. Hey, did a squirrel dude pick one and give it to the rabbit? How else...
