    Default Meet Vincent the rabbit born without ears

    For a moment teenager John Haig thought a guinea pig had found its way into his family of young rabbits.
    One of the young animals that came bouncing out of a hutch with the rest of the brood was lacking something - a pair of ears.
    But the little creature was indeed a rabbit, otherwise healthy and part of a family of ten brothers and sisters.

    Bucking the trend: Vincent, the young rabbit with no ears, is otherwise perfectly healthy

    He has been named Vincent - in honour of Van Gogh, the painter who cut off his own ear - by 16-year-old John.
    'I've never seen one like that before,' he said. 'He's perfectly healthy, he's just got no ears.'
    The farming student, who lives with his mother Carol, 59, in Burn, North Yorkshire, has been breeding rabbits since he was 11.

    He spotted Vincent when the youngsters emerged with their mother Rosie for the first time from their hutch at three weeks old.
    Mrs Haig, who also has a dog, a cat, 12 guinea pigs, and some fish, said that the missing ears could be result of a genetic defect.
    Another theory is that his ears may have been bitten off by his mother. Female rabbits are known to attack their offspring if they are distressed.

    He looks like a chocolate easter bunny with the ears bit off.

    Exactly what I was thinking! I have a friend who had a GP that looked just like that!

    That reminds me of a hampster I bought years ago at a pet store, got it home, noticed it only had three legs. It was fat and furry in the petstore curled in a ball, I did not check to make sure it had four! I called the petstore and the guy said, "What does it matter if he only has three legs, don't you love it anyway?" He had a good point but makes you wonder how they are bred, or interbred.
