St. Nicholas Cathedral in Newcastle-Upon-Tyne is guarded by a most unusual gargoyle – the figure of a demonic rabbit with red fangs and claws. (He started out the same color as the surrounding stone and was given a scary paint job later on.)

No one knows why the mysterious creature was set above the rear door of the cathedral a hundred years ago… Perhaps a tribute to Monty Python’s Killer Rabbit of Caerbannog? “That rabbit’s got a vicious streak a mile wide! It’s a killer!”
