You looking at me?

A rabbit on Okunoshima Island, Japan on March 15, 2009. The origin of the rabbits on the so-called "Rabbit Island" is somewhat of a mystery. Officials say that a local elementary school released of 8 of their ancestors in 1971, while other sources say they were originally brought to the island to perform laboratory testing of chemicals.

The island housed a gas factory producing much of the chemical weapons that were used by the Japanese army on the Chinese mainland during World War II. Nowadays, Okunoshima has been cleaned up but ruins of the military fortifications and gas production and storage units can be found all over the island: Ruins that are only occupied by... the rabbits.
