THE HAGUE, Netherlands (AP)-Shocked by the untimely death of her pet dog down a royal
rabbit hole, Queen Beatrix is trying to drive the burrowing beasts from the palace
gardens, a Dutch newspaper, Algemeen Dagblad, reported recently.
The Queen has ordered her gardeners out on regular rabbit-hunting missions at her
royal residence on the outskirts of the Hague. The Queen's dog, Miss Pepper, was
found dead of asphyxiation after getting caught head-first in a rabbit hole in February.
