Run rabbit, run

I very much enjoyed this piece in this morning's Western Mail, so much so that I have reproduced it here:

"Five thousand rabbits blocked a Hungarian motorway yesterday, after the truck that was carrying them crashed.

The animals escaped after the truck - which was heading to the slaughterhouse - collided with another vehicle and overturned.

The M1 motorway, the main road between Budapest and the Austrian capital, Vienna, was closed for several hours.

Both drivers were unharmed in the accident, but some 500 rabbits were killed.

By midday, 4,400 rabbits had been collected and taken away from the scene, while 100 were still roaming the fields surrounding the motorway.

"These 100 are free to go. We will not collect them," a motorway patrol spokeswoman said."

And we think we have problems when a few sheep get on the M4?
