I'm Walking Hare! Brown Hares Box in Norfolk Field

A pair of hares was spotted boxing in a green Norfolk field on April 2.

Local photographer Paula Cooper, who shot this footage near Swaffham, told Storyful she had pulled over “and was watching a number brown hares on some local fields when this pair ran right in front of me and began boxing.”

According to The Woodland Trust, boxing between hares usually breaks out “when a male is being too persistent with a female, chasing her across fields in an attempt to mate.”

Cooper said the duking duo began eating again shortly after she stopped filming, with “the female giving the male an odd glare.” Credit: Paula Cooper via Storyful
