Abbey Burger Bistro figured 300 pounds of kangaroo would be enough to last a month. But customers ordered their way through that supply in just about two weeks. Abbey 's general manager Jon Taylor general manager told me that kangaroo, currently the "meat of the month" on the restaurant's "build a burger" menu, has a sweet taste that his customers are enjoying. It's a lean meat, too. Kangaroo will advance to the regular menu, Taylor, says if he can be sure of a regular supply.

Four children and one adult at a summer camp in Jarrettsville were hospitalized overnight after being exposed to deer and rabbit repellent in two cabins on the camp's grounds, according to Harford County Fire and EMS officials. Fire officials and hazmat units responded to Camp Wo-Me-To in the 1200 block of Knopp Road for a report of an exposure to an unknown chemical late Tuesday, and eventually transported the children and the adult to a local hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, officials said.

Rabbits are an increasingly popular pet, a relatively low-maintenance animal that's quiet, affectionate and playful.The big news in rabbits is that they needn't be banished to an outdoor hutch. "House rabbit" proponents say they make wonderful indoor pets for both children and adults.But knowledge lags behind popularity. A couple weeks ago I got a call from a woman who wanted to know if her son's bunny was expecting. Seems the parents bought two litter-mates as tiny babies, brother and sister, and put them together in a cage.

We just received a letter from our state senator (Jim Brochin) that has me befuddled. He says "The new law increases the gas tax from 23.5 cents per gallon to 43.5 cents per gallon by mid-2016. Additional gas taxes will then be linked to the Consumer Price Index (CPI). The leadership in the House and Senate did this so that legislators will not have to continually go on the record and vote for higher gas taxes. While some think that most of this tax money will go to fix roads and bridges, it will not. It is estimated that 58 percent of the money will go toward new light rail services in Baltimore City and Montgomery County where the fare recovery is less than 40 percent.

Love and butterflies are the innocent motifs floating above a swamp of anger, darkness, daring and occasional stupidity in five new works of fiction this fall. Though these books are widely dissimilar, they do share characteristics. Butterflies are a strong motif in two, used to wildly different effect, while love, or the lack thereof, pervades the rest. John Updike is back with more of his character Rabbit Angstrom, who's dead but continues to have a profound effect on the people he left behind.

Vader probably decided yesterday he'd rather take a bite out of a rabbit than a bite out of crime.About 3 a.m., the would-be police dog was walking with his handler, Montgomery County Officer Timothy Carroll, in a park in the 14900 block of Old Columbia Pike, Silver Spring, when he apparently decided that police work just was not for him.Although he was on a 20-foot leash, Vader "bolted from the handler and was last seen chasing a rabbit" into the woods,...

SARATOGA SPRINGS, N.Y. -- The rabbit slowed at the three-quarter pole. The Cat was passed by The Dog. The Dog chased The Bull. The Bull outran The Rabbit, The Cat and The Dog.Nobody beats The Bull.That, in a nutshell, is the story of the $725,000 Travers Stakes, the 125-year-old Midsummer Derby that ended in a photo finish here yesterday and left Holy Bull the undisputed leader in American thoroughbred racing.Before 46,395 at Saratoga Race Course, Holy Bull held off a spectacular late charge by Maryland-bred underdog Concern, nipped him by a neck with his final stride and perhaps silenced his last critics.

Jake Gyllenhaal, who looks like Tobey Maguire's loonier brother, has run through a spate of oddball roles, such as the title character in Bubble Boy and the Holden Caulfield wannabe in The Good Girl. None is weirder than the lead in Donnie Darko, a troubled suburban teen-ager visited by a demonic, human-sized rabbit named Frank. Premiering theatrically in Baltimore today at the Charles months after hitting the DVD racks, this 2001 picture has gained a wide cult following - it ranks 88 on the Internet Movie Database list of the top 250 films.

The most captivating movie-comedy team today consists of a doughy, provincial Brit named Wallace and his wily, agile dog, Gromit. They may be made of plasticine - clay mixed with oil and pigment - but their creator, Nick Park, and his co-director on Wallace & Gromit: The Curse of the Were-Rabbit, Steve Box, mold them into alternately outrageous and beguiling expressions of courage, panic, frustration and devotion. Over the course of three Oscar-honored shorts (A Grand Day Out was nominated, The Wrong Trousers and A Close Shave won)

A veterinarian, accompanying the Calvert County Sheriff's Office, determined that 43 rabbits were healthy enough to stay at the Bunny Magic Rabbit Rescue and Wildlife Rehabilitation in the 1300 block of Tongue Cove Lane in Lusby, police said. The veterinarian examined the rabbits and determined that 222 needed further medical care. A woman who answered the phone at the rescue Thursday said she had no comment.

State health officials are warning Marylanders that baby rabbits, turtles, chicks, ducklings and other animals popular around the Easter holiday can spread salmonella and other harmful bacteria to people. Since September 2001, six people in Maryland have contracted bacterial infections from baby turtles, or those with shells less than four inches wide, according to the Department of Health and Mental Hygiene. Five of the cases required hospitalizations. U.S. Food and Drug Administration rules don't allow the sale of baby turtles, but in three of the cases the turtles were bought from a neighborhood baby turtle vendor.

Who's ready to leave the white sandy beaches of Lake Malawi? I wouldn't mind hanging out there for a few days, but this show insists on traveling around the entire world, so it's off to Copenhagen, Denmark, for the first time in Race history. The Malawi-Denmark air travel corridor isn't that popular, so production has secured flights for the teams. However, they are allowed to try for something better. For reasons that I blinked and missed, Marcus and Amani do not try for something better.

It's 3:37 p.m., and 2-year-old Hattie's right leg is covered in melted SpongeBob SquarePants. She came by the cartoon-shaped ice cream less than 10 minutes before at a roving stand near the intersection of Mount Royal and Lafayette avenues. Hattie hadn't eaten much when the treat puddled in her lap, devoured by the sun's mid-80s heat. Behind her in a two-kid stroller, her brother Will, 4, was doing a bit better with his ice cream sandwich, as were their cousins, Zeb and Fiona, ages 3 and 5, respectively, who were stumbling alongside their mother and aunt.

My best date ever involved hunting for rabbit. We didn't intend to spend the date this way. The man I had been seeing for a few months initially proposed a far more ordinary activity: seeing a movie at a Columbia multiplex on a winter evening. But the movie was sold out, so we browsed at Borders while we waited for the next show. That's when we spotted the food-and-travel book of the moment - Under the Tuscan Sun, Frances Mayes' tale of how she restored an abandoned villa in the Italian countryside while feasting on olives, nuts and pears fresh off the trees.

It’s a strange day to be a Kid Cudi fan. With the release of “Perfect is the Word,” the Cleveland rapper has officially taken the ill-advised route of ditching hip-hop for droning, dreary rock ‘n’ roll. Cudi’s fascination with rock is nothing new (his best song, “Pursuit of Happiness,” features MGMT and Ratatat, while “Erase Me” is built around cheesy Weezer guitars), but “Perfect is the Word” is an entirely different, ultimately ugly beast. Along with producer Dot Da Genius, Cudder is fronting a rock project titled 2 Be Continuum (clearly the music isn’t the only problem)

A Columbia family with 78 rabbits running free in their townhouse lost them to Howard County Animal Control officers Tuesday, but county police said the animals are in good shape and some can be adopted immediately. Police said an anonymous caller directed Animal Control officers to the home in the 5800 block of Barnwood Place near Howard County General Hospital. The caller said animals were living in poor conditions inside a house. They found and removed 64 rabbits that were in good condition but were running free in the home occupied by a 46-year old woman and her 18-year old son, who voluntarily surrendered them.
