Cody man catches ‘jackalope fight' on camera; photos go viral

It's not everyday that you see sparring jackalopes.

But JR Robison of Cody was "lucky" enough to capture the rare event on Saturday and posted a series of photos on his Facebook page.

"BIG Jackalope fight in the front yard this morning," he wrote.

Many Facebook users shared in the fun, posting tongue-in-cheek comments.

"Those little buggers will attack you if you're not sneaky enough," wrote Rod Morrison, remarking that it's the closest he's ever seen anyone get to a buck fight.

Others noted it is jackalope rut season, and marveled at Robison's luck at capturing the moment.

"Have not seen a jackalope rut since the 80's....," wrote Barry Hess. "Thank God Obama saved them from extinction."

The post made others scratch their heads.

"I thought jackalopes were a fake animal," one Facebook user wrote.
 
"So are those real because I just Googled jackalope an it's says it's an American fokelore," another commented. "What the hell I'm sooooo confused."
