I suppose you have all seen a Hare, and perhaps many of you have
helped to eat one. The Hare is a very timid animal, running away on
the least alarm; but, poor fellow, he is too often caught by the dogs
and killed, notwithstanding his swift running. It is rather difficult
to tame Hares, but there is a very amusing account of three, named
Puss, Tiney, and Bess, written by the poet Cowper, who kept them for
some time, and one day you shall read about them. The colour of the
Hare in this country is usually brown, but white Hares are found in
very cold countries. The Hare does not burrow like the rabbit, but
makes a kind of nest called its form.
