The LaCucaracha Hunting Education Foundation (LHEF) will host its annual Easter Egg Hunt on Easter Sunday after church, 2:00 pm, at the Fairgrounds. The event will feature more than 100 prize eggs, but due to last year’s unfortunate mishap, no pocket knives or live ammo will be included in prize eggs for the under 3 division egg hunt.
A bunny petting corral will be available until 3:15 pm, when the Bunny Hunt begins. The rabbits will be released into the pasture adjacent to the Fairgrounds for the annual hunt. The LHEF requests that parents remind their children that any participants who begin shooting before the starting flag is waved will be disqualified. Bow hunters will be granted a two minute head start. Parents are also encouraged to remind their older children not to hunt any rabbits who refuse to leave the immediate vicinity of the Bunny Corral – “let’s leave those for the little children to hunt,” said LHEF president Angela Travis.
After the Bunny Hunt, hands-on cleaning instruction will be provided by LHEF volunteers along with an FHA rabbit stew cooking demonstration. The Bunny Stew Easter Feast will begin promptly at 4:45 pm. The event will conclude at 5:45, which should give everyone enough time to attend Sunday evening church services. Any rabbits not killed in the Bunny Hunt will be available free of charge to take home as pets or show animals.
