To think my rabbit is haunted?

Ok lovely mnetters-mystery for you !
Attached pic is the stone rabbit that sits in my garden next to the pond. As you can see its fairly large(and heavy) yet at least once a week it turns around !!
Some background-i do have older teenage kids but they use our back door not the front where the rabbit is
It ALWAYS happens at night(hours of darkness)
We are at the end of a dead end street-theres my house, next door then the east coast mainline railway line-so no through traffic past the front of my house at all-oh and at the front of the house is a bike path not a road-so no cars either
My 2 next door neighbours-left side works nights at the local airport-we usually pass on our way out to work as they are coming in
My ndn to the right-a frail old lady who lives alone
So come on mnetters-is it haunted or is there something obvious im missing?

It's the sort of thing my teens would do Grin

Set up a camera!

I reckon he just gets bored looking the same direction all the time.

Or perhaps he goes out on nightly benders and forgets which direction he is supposed to face?

I reckon he is norty not haunted.


DJBaggySmalls · 21/06/2017 12:34

Thats the sort of thing I still do. I repainted one of my neighbours garden gnomes. It took her a few weeks to notice he had lipstick.


VerityHabitat · 21/06/2017 12:35

He has a rather pretentious stance, doesn't he?

He thinks he is too good to stay in one position for perpetuity. You have a snobby bunny.

Teenagers. They will be pissing themselves laughing if they hear you talk about it being haunted


Iwasjustabouttosaythat · 21/06/2017 12:38

I though you were going to be talking about a vibrator. What a different thread I was expecting! 😂

If there's a bike path surely plenty of people have the opportunity to play a prank?


Maudlinmaud · 21/06/2017 12:38

My db used to turn the ornaments around on the mantle piece to freak our mum out. She genuinely thought we had a poltergeist. I'd lay money on it being the teens playing with your mind.


DrJZoidberg · 21/06/2017 12:41


Or, someone casing your house. But more likely the teenagers!

I thought this was going to be some Bright Eyes type affair.


redannie118 · 21/06/2017 12:42

Lol some brilliant answers here ! I think the kids are the most likely culprits-although it normally takes a crane to get them out of bed once they are in there so would be suprised if it was them !!djbaggy -thats hilarious !!!Grin

You have to booby trap it now!


MrsOverTheRoad · 21/06/2017 12:44

I was hoping for an actual pet rabbit that spoke in a demonic fashion!

"Get me the carrots bitch"

Kind of thing.


redannie118 · 21/06/2017 12:44

Yes there is a bike path-but it finishes down the street bcause of the trainline so there is nothing in front of my house -its a complete dead end

bedouincheek · 21/06/2017 12:45

Vibration from the train line slowly turning it? Wasn't there an exhibit in the British museum that did the same?


Maudlinmaud · 21/06/2017 12:46

Mrs Grin you have just made me crack a smile for the first time today. Quite an achievement. My face hurts now though.


waitforitfdear · 21/06/2017 12:53

He does look up himself doesn't he? Grin


redannie118 · 21/06/2017 12:55

Mrs Grin
The trainline thing is interesting-but when we notice it it has gone from facing right to left over night-so surely if it was the trains it would be more gradual or every night?

VerityHabitat · 21/06/2017 12:57

He does, waitforitfdear. I reckon he speaks RP English and has a butler in the shrubbery. He is well posh, he is.


MrsOverTheRoad · 21/06/2017 13:00

Maud Flowers Hope you feel a bit better!


Maudlinmaud · 21/06/2017 13:02

Haha Mrs thanks. I'm not unwell just have so much to do today and a bit frazzled. Why I'm procrastinating here is beyond me Wink


MrsOverTheRoad · 21/06/2017 13:04

Oh tell me about it Maud! I'm meant to be working on something that's due in tomorrow!

So I'm sitting here, eating cornflakes and reading MN!


Ohyesiam · 21/06/2017 13:12

We walked home from school a different way yesterday to get some shade in the woods. We passed a cottage, and my daughter pointed to a little slate "shelf" above one of those bricks with an air vent in it. Ever since I have fantasising about nipping up their and super glueing a tiny ornament on. There's just room for 2or3 whimsies ( anyone remember those? ).

Maybe you have a neighbour like me op.


waitforitfdear · 21/06/2017 13:14

a butler In the shrubbery Grin


waitforitfdear · 21/06/2017 13:16

What's on the plinth behind him op? It's like bloody Trafalgar Square love. Grin
