The Lewisburg Chronicle, Volume V, Number 33, Thursday, December 26, 1850
A curious animal of the Rabbit species, was killed by W. H. H. Crane in the Meadows on the 9th inst., a Rabbit as White as the driven
snow, much larger that the common grey Rabbit, its length from nose to the end of its tail, 2 feet 6 inches, length of hind legs 12 inches each toe on the hind feet measuring 2 1-2 inches, and five inches from tip of the outside toe, to that of the other, eyes very small, length of the fore leg 7 inches. This is evidently not a native of this climate, but the stranger emanated from is entirely unknown. The skin of this strange Rabbit is neatly preserved and may be seen by calling near Big Clear Creek Bridge.
