- Apr 7, 2006LONDON (Reuters) - It sounds like a job for Wallace and Gromit.
A "monster" rabbit has apparently been rampaging through vegetable patches
in a small village in northern England, ripping up leeks, munching turnips
and infuriating local gardeners.
In an uncanny resemblance to the plot of the hit animated film "Wallace &
Gromit in the Curse of the Were-Rabbit," angry horticulturists in Felton,
near Newcastle, have now mounted an armed guard to protect their prized
cabbages and parsnips.
"They call it the monster. It's very big -- it's nearly the size of a dog,"
said Joan Smith, whose son Jeff owns one of the plots under attack.
