In the desolate yet beautiful landscapes of the table Mesa Planes in Arizona lives a majestic,elusive,mystical creature that has had man baffled over it's unique origin of what seems to be a genetic cross breeding. It is believed that centuries ago this beautiful elusive creature roamed all over North America and Canada. Do to habitat changes and the encroachment of man has systematically driven these species to extinction, except for the undisturbed Table of Mesa Planes. This is now believed to be it's sole refuge and the place of undisturbed habitat.
The Jackalope is a rare and a Devinne creature that was placed on this earth, with it's horns for defense, it's ears for protection and eyes placed ever so elegantly to see everything. Unfortunately this would prove not enough to keep the species thriving. Man's discovery of the Jackalope only turned this rare creature into a sporting event of hunting for them. Man would use the head of the Jackalope because of it's horns and mount them on a plaque to display them on there walls. They would hunt for the female Jackalope for her long fury felt like feet as souvenirs and dispose of the rest of body like garbage.
As the years went on the hunting continued all over North America and Canada finally making the Jackalope extinct, or so man thought. But here in Arizona at the table mesa planes. A small herd can be spotted every now and then. There have also been sightings in a town close by called Sun City.
Please if you ever get a chance to see one that is not mounted on some hunters wall relish the mystical moment and cherish the memories forever. Never take for granted the legends and story's you hear, as they have originated from somewhere. Long live the mighty jackalope.
