That’s just rude: Rabbit desecrates LB’s grave

Somehow not entirely unfitting under the circumstances.


Several of the graves on Boot Hill have decorative rocks that may serve some accidental protective function. I never got around to doing that with LB’s grave, and this morning I found reason to regret that…


Big hole! My first thought, of course, was scavengers and that both bothered and perplexed me; it’s fairly recent, and there can’t be anything left more than six feet down to attract a scavenger. Then I took a closer look…


The hole goes down less than 2 feet, then hangs a right. It’s a rabbit warren.

Which, given Little Bear’s favorite food during his life, is somehow entirely … well, the word karma comes to mind.

I’m still going to fill it in and line the grave with stones. ‘Cause don’t do that to my favorite dog’s grave.

    Damn, I’m sorry to learn this. LB was one of the good ones.

  2. Based on your footprint in the 2nd pic – it looks like the hole is >8″ in diameter. Holes that size around here often belong to a badger- fwiw.

    To be clearer… sometimes badgers dig holes to live in – sometimes they’re just after prey. I’m not saying there’s a badger living in the hole – only that it might have been made by a badger.

    I concede that it is rather large for a rabbit hole.

    So stick your hand down in it and pull out whatever is at the bottom!

    We need some entertainment!

    That’s amongst the reasons that I want to be cremated.

    @Timbotoo:
    Result is sort of the same. The timeline can vary some though…

    @John
    I agree, no logic but I’d still rather go up the flue.

To the stake with the heretic!
