The Noble Jackalope

A stuffed Jackalope. (Wikipedia/Sedes Gobhani)

My first real education of the Noble Jackalope was in 2005. That’s when we broadcast one of the very first Wonders of Wyoming radio broadcasts. This 90-second feature was written by the very talented Lance Cook, who has written many WOW’s, and has produced every single Wonders of Wyoming broadcast, almost 2,000 shows.

I voiced this Wonder of Wyoming radio show on August 8, 2005. And I think it best describes the Noble Jackalope.

It read — “The breath-taking beauty of Wyoming has always been enhanced by the noble creatures that call her mountains, valleys and plains, home. The buffalo, the bobcat, the mountain lion…ah but none of these compare to the Lupus Temperamentalus…the Noble Jackalope. The only “antlered” rabbit in the World, the Jackalope possesses many wonderful abilities, including the ability to mimic the human voice. This talent alone is considered the main reason the Jackalope has survived for so long. When hunters would close-in on the creature, Jackalopes were known to shout out confusing commands and directions, thus scattering their pursuers. One of the Jackalope’s favorite treats appears to be whiskey, and many an old Jackalope hunter has testified to the fact that the drink appears to slow the animal down considerably.

Douglas, Wyoming, claims the distinction of “Jackalope Capital of the World”. In fact, the Douglas Chamber of Commerce would be more than happy to sell you a Jackalope Hunting License. A statue of this nearly-extinct animal also graces the Douglas Town Center.

Yes, many things make Wyoming a special and blessed place to live, but remember, if you ever see a Jackalope, it’s a wonder…”
