Rabbit! Rabbit!

Portland RabbitMany people on Portland believe the rabbit is bad luck! Even to say the word could send Portlanders into a stupor, fearing of what might happen. The fear of rabbits is based on the fact that quarry men would often see rabbits emerging from their burrows immediately before a rock fall. Such rock falls often injured and even killed quarry workers; therefore, it is understandable why rabbits became associated with bad luck.
