“Young Rabbits in the Scare-crow – by Harrison Weir” is a full page book plate image, taken from the “Chatterbox Album of Animals”, published by W.W.Gardner, circa 1878. The short anecdote accompanying the illustration, simply states: “The body of the ugly old Scare-crow in the picture is made of a big bag stuffed with straw. Inside this bag, five young Rabbits have their home. It is certainly a novel breeding-place, especially as the rabbit very seldom breeds above ground.”
