The Last Fall. A Sad Story About One Hare

This is a hare which fur has just begun to turn white. It is hiding in the grass.

Upon seeing the people, scared, it is not trying to run away. It’s coming up and freezes. It has done it on purpose and it looks like it’s ready for anything. From now and on, everything gets clear. The hare is old, thin, and weak.

It does not resist flattering it.

The Last Fall. A Sad Story About One Hare

It is thinking about something. Maybe it is reflecting on its whole life; from the time it first saw the river in summer and the mountains showing up white behind it, up to today, when nothing scares it. Now it does not matter for it, whether it is a falcon living in the clouds, a fox, a wolf, a glutton, or a human.

The hare is lying on a sunny spot close to the river. Even though the hare is less than just two meters away from it, it is unlikely that it is going to have enough strength to get back.  It looks like it is its last day of life. And it really is. The next day the hare is found dead.

  1. All our bodies will stop working one day, it will die, and we will not be able to live in it any more.

    The difference between the hare and us is that we will know what is happening, we can be prepared.

  2. Poor little bunny. Looks like he lived a good life in beautiful surroundings. I like to imagine he’s hipping and hopping somewhere nice across the rainbow bridge!

  3. A hare that died from old age………. Not eaten or shot by anybody….. Lived a life in an environment friendly way……….. died in the leafs which is his own bed and at peace with dying… I dont really see anything sad in this story.

  4. This reminds me of many old people in asylum for the aged who are waiting certain death lonely..They have led very hard life compared with us but no one stays beside them. Sad because this reminds me of my parents..

  5. Jesus…that is really something.
    In the wild, an average life expectancy of a hare goes up to 2 or three years. Too many predators, and being culled out of necessity by humans, really makes it a rarity to see an actual hare die of old age. And to think, how many of his own generation even survived to his age? Great photos, man, that was seriously special.

  6. Hare today – gone tomorrow. Few have such a dignified end.The bible says animals have no souls and do not go to heaven. How can it be heaven without birds, dogs, cats ….. I’m not going.

  7. It’s nice to see so many comments about one bunny. I think if a creature has feelings then it has a soul and if it has a soul well then heaven is possible.
