Enough of Ladies of the Night, Dancing Girls, Husband’s Commandments, Bottom Drawers and Whispering Wedding Bells. It’s time to go back to one of my favourite Trove Tuesday themes, animal stories.
The Argus of August 5, 1873 published an article from the Hamilton Spectator, relating a story of a hare that had the writer confirming Darwin’s Theory of Natural Selection. The hare may not have agreed. No amount of adaptation could save her from a band of men with sticks and dogs.
The following image from the State Library of Victoria depicts scenes from a coursing outing in 1883, however the bunny sketch could have come straight out a Peter Rabbit story.

Oh… poor little bunnies 😦 Yep, I know they’re an absolute pest in Australia… 😉
