Until they were overhunted in the late 1800's, the west abounded with these strange critters They called them Jack-a-lopes. An inbreeding freak caused by the mating of an Antelope and a Jack rabbit.Ha, reminds me of my first experience with a squirrel, we don't have them in Oz.
What about - The flying variation
The flying jackalope is a variation originating in Wall, South Dakota. The flying jackalope looks like a cross between the standard jackalope and a chicken. This animal is much rarer than the jackalope and due to its blinding fast speed it is rarely seen by people. You can bait it with a concoction that include baloney and whiskey, among other things.
