It’s cute but also, maybe, a little creepy.

It can be fun to offer treats to animals – right up until they turn on you.

A Hong Kong woman was chased by a large herd of wild rabbits after she offered them treats.

It happened on Okunoshima Island, also known as “Rabbit Island,” in Japan.

The isolated island was reportedly a top-secret military site but, today, is overrun with hundreds of rabbits that roam free and sometimes jump into the laps of people.  The rabbits are accustomed to humans and visitors are allowed to feed them.
