Award winning rabbits among 120 killed in barn fire


SOMERSET, WI (WTAQ) - Some award-winning show rabbits were among 120 killed in a barn fire last Friday in far western Wisconsin.

The blaze occurred near Somerset in St. Croix County.

The rabbits were owned by Dan Hall and his sister DeAnn Ray. Hall told WQOW-TV in Eau Claire that some of the rabbits had won national competitions, and were worth $500 apiece.

All told, the value of the rabbits was $10 to $20,000. Hall and Ray also lost numerous trophies and ribbons in the fire – and they said the barn was over 100 years old.

Ray told WQOW that her daughter was checking out the damage when a rabbit hopped up to her. The animal appears to be the only survivor of the blaze – and its new name is “Very Lucky.”
