    I think there are far worse things in this world to get upset about

    If you're a veteran and have put your life on the line, equating a bunny with a memorial to those who have died is not very smart. I say put the bunny somewhere else.

    I think if it was strictly a Memorial park that would be different, but this is a public park where it just so happens they placed a memorial monument for the vets. I sadly think there is no harm in this, and the fact that is was made by a veteran to honor a fallen veteran even garners more support to have the bunny remain. IMHO

    It's temporary! Sheesh. As such, the Bunny probably draws more attention to the War Memorial...

    I think the Vets who are all riled up need to grow some perspective: it's a public park, not a dedicated sanctuary. It's simply NOT all about them. Relax, and bring the grandkids by to see the Bunny who's visiting. :moo:

    It's temporary, it's not sitting right up against the war memorial, and it's not a cartoon-style rabbit. If it were Roger Rabbit I might feel differently, but it's just a white rabbit in a natural rabbit position.
