The Vampire Rabbit of Newcastle





This sweet little blood-sucking bunny sits above an ornate doorway in the British town of Newcastle Upon Tyne, waiting to spring on unsuspecting pedestrians. I've done a little research, and apparently no one knows who put it there--or why.

Any thoughts?

Does it really spring on innocent pedestrians? Or just sit and watch them?
I've held a bunny in my lap before. It was white and it kept hopping so I got some scratches :( But it was exactly like a cat! So cuddly, it was as big as a cat too!

Hey everyone! I am getting pet chickens this weekend!!!!! Will post photos on blog

That door looks like it belongs on a shop at Disney World. I wonder who put the rabbit there and why? Seems like a weird thing to do.

Really cool! More like an evil Disney. I've been there, and nothing like that would be able to get anywhere near there.

Maybe the people that built it met my friend's rabbit. Her rabbit growled at me! It's that evil. also it attacked my sister's hand when she tried to pet it!

A clue might lie in what's beyond the door, or what was...
Anyone know?

I have had 2 pet rabbits. They are great!

I think that who ever desinged the doorway put it there, it goes with the rest of the house.

Lady Dahlia: Congrats on your blog and your book! I'm not sure what's going on with your publish button. What does it say when you click on "Edit Posts" on the Dashboard page?

Kiki Strike ITSC: the edit posts page said my post was scheduled for 12:10am. Obviously it's been posted already. Thanks for the tip!

No idea why it did that with my first post. My second post showed up on my blog right away. Oh well.

I like it. The bunny's like a modern version of a gargoyle. And gargoyles are THE most amazing architectural detail in the history of architecture. Except, perhaps, for arches. Those are pretty handy.

I'm just wondering, but have you read the Twilight series? What do you think of it?

According to:

it's a door to an office of lawyers.

I live in Newcastle but I've never been there.
