Odd Rabbits

We've spotted a large reddish brown rabbit in our neighborhood. We'd be interested to know what kind it is.

The only native rabbit we have is the Eastern Cottontail. They are grey in color. I would guess that this is a domestic breed that escaped or was released from its cage. I could possibly ID it with a picture, if you have one send it to Rex.mcbride@uky.edu .
