The Wolpertinger

This creature is supposed to live in the forests of Bavaria in Germany. It is said to have the body parts of various animals:wings,antlers and fangs, all attached to the body of a small mammal. The most widespread description is that of a rabbit with horns. It is possible that the Wolpertinger is in fact a wild rabbit infected with Shope papillomavirus, which causes the growth of antler-like tumours on various places on its body.
