Larger-than-life rabbit to go up for adoption in Oregon

      PORTLAND, Ore. - Is this bunny too big to believe?

      Our newsroom was baffled by this photo when it was sent to us by the Oregon Humane Society. No, the picture hasn't been photoshopped - that's really a Flemish giant rabbit that lives right here in Portland.

      Staffers wanted to take advantage of the upcoming Easter holiday to introduce folks to Wally, who will be up for adoption sometime next week.

      They're hosting an Easter event Sunday from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. at the humane society at 1067 N.E. Columbia Blvd. in Portland.

      "The public can also get to meet his bunny pals and perhaps take one home. Enjoy Easter candy while learning the joy of rabbits as pets," the humane society news release said.

      The OHS staff also said they'll be on hand to answer all your questions about rabbits and why they make great pets.

      In the meantime, we're sending a crew to the humane society this afternoon to check out Wally's larger-than-life frame.
