Hiding is hard to do if you have a cotton boll for a tail. Pity poor Peter Rabbit, pursued as food by every fang and claw from Canada to the Land of Cotton. Providing protein for predatory species while perpetuating one's own presupposes a prodigality of procreation that has procured for the cottontail a reputation for a perpetually proliferating population. So without predators, we'd be up to our ears in rabbits. Without rabbits, we'd be living in a jungle of lettuce. Let us, therefore, give thanks for the balance of nature.
