I'd love a pet Hare, but can't find one anywhere....

I don't think there are any domesticated hares. How about a really long eared rabbit?

Google! I just found loads for sale for you!

It takes centuries of selective breeding to domesticate an animal properly. Any hare you bought would be miserable, prone to aggression and an escape artist.

^ yup! I found Belgian hares - which on reading are actually rabbits that are made to look like hares!

Belgian hares are lovely though - a nice compromise?

There are some Belgian Hares here looking for a home if it's anywhere near you?

How do you hang on to them? Do they not go like shit off a shovel?
