On a cold winter's night, you sit at the edge of a meadow. You bring your hand up to your mouth and breathe through your fingers. You make a noise that sounds like a wounded rabbit.And I think, oh, I do? Really? What the hell does a wounded rabbit sound like?
Out of nowhere, an animal appears at the far end of the meadow. . . . It's a fox!If foxes are as smart as they say -- and the ones in our neighborhood are always able to outwit my dog and escape her, although she is admittedly the stupidest mammal in the county -- are they really going to be fooled by my pathetic imitation of a wounded rabbit? Assuming, that is, I somehow figure out what a wounded rabbit sounds like. Do you suppose there is a Youtube that explains it?
And why am I sitting at the edge of a meadow on a cold winter's night anyway, instead of home at my computer?
UPDATE: You can hear a "distressed rabbit" here. Ugh. And noway I am ever making that noise by breathing through my fingers.
