Devil Bunny?

So you think that your house is haunted and you decide to bring in a TV medium to sort things out. The medium explains that the problem is obvious - your family pet is a really big rabbit. Oddly enough, named "Ralph" rather than the more prosaic "Harvey."

‘We are pretty sure our house is haunted by something or other, so Ralph went up to London with friends of ours to meet Derek Acorah,’ said owner Pauline Grant. ‘They said it was pretty spooky and he had a good old chat with Ralph about the spirits in our house.

‘He seemed to think Ralph was channelling the spirit of a ghoul. It sounds like a load of old nonsense but Ralph isn’t your average rabbit,’ she added.

Ralph’s mother, Amy, was the world’s biggest rabbit until her death last year. She weighed in at 19kg (42lb) and was 1.22m (4ft) long. Mrs Grant believes Ralph, even though he’s less than a year old, is already longer and heavier.

‘He is just so big. You do not fully realise until you pick him up,’ she said.

The connection between oversized animals and paranormal phenomena has to my knowledge never been explored, largely because it sounds completely ridiculous. But let's say you have the world's biggest hedgehog and are hearing strange noises at night. Does that mean you need to call in the Ghost Hunters?

I'll open this one up to readers - have any of your ever experienced a haunting centered on a larger-than-usual pet? Or this medium just completely confused? As always, "both" constitutes a reasonable response.

UPDATE: I wonder if this woman has any trouble with hauntings. She sure has a big dog.
