Seriously... other than cattle, I think this is the first photo I've ever seen of an animal killed by hailstones.  Pretty wild....

Poor bunny!!

I've learned something new today...I had NO idea that there have been cattle killed by hail stones. I know lightning gets them (we lost two cows in one storm last year) but had never thought about large hail!
