A jack rabbit with antlers from the stories told by the lumberjacks of the emerging North America in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. They have the ability to imitate various sounds which it uses to evade pursuers. It is extremely shy and has never been captured. It seems to have been an invention of Douglas Wyoming who created the idea of this beast for entertainment purposes for his family. A scientific explanation explains that rabbits can be infected by a virus that causes hornlike growth on their body.
