Australian Greyhound racing fans were treated to an unusually exciting race in the Finer Fruit Stakes in Shepperton, Victoria earlier this week. Ginny Lou was putting in a pretty good run and holding third place when the unthinkable happened: a very real, and very crazy rabbit ran on to the track. Ginny did what any respectable hound would do and broke from the pack to let them chase a decoy while she pursued the genuine article. Officials were forced to declare a non-race, and bookies had to refund all gambling wages.
As quickly as it appeared, the rogue rabbit vanished, leaving spectators and race organizers dumbfounded.
