Urban Rabbit Sighting
San Francisco's not a mega-city on par with the likes of Los Angeles or New York, but the downtown area, with its glass and steel monuments to capitalism, does have a pretty intensely urban feel. And that's why you don't often see wildlife in this part of town.
But a few years ago, this rabbit was observed hanging out at the park next to the baseball stadium, and appeared to be unphased by the presence of the people around him, many of whom expressed their amazement at this remarkable juxtaposition of the natural and modern worlds.
After a while, the rabbit slowly moved off in the direction of the parking lot next to the stadium, and a few minutes later, faded into the late afternoon shadows.
