Harvey At Home
"BENEFACTOR Peter McCabe would like to give friend Harvey the run of the house but Harvey is not housebroken."
This is the best photo of Harvey himself. The story (and a true one at that) was that Harvey was a barroom rabbit who led a modest life of rabbit food and gin-soaked carrots. Peter McCabe, a local, took pity on him one day, and bought him from the owner of the bar and led him home. He let Harvey out into the yard with his sheep who usually grazed on the lawn and kept the grass short. Harvey was curious, and hopped over to the sheep to meet them when he was immediately charged by an old ewe.
