Allotment holders are hopping mad as their green goodies are being destroyed by what seems to be a giant rabbit.
They've called in trained marksmen after rows of veggies have been ripped up on the patches in Northumberland.
But the RSPCA has called for a kinder solution, urging them to trap it in a cage and release it elsewhere.
Jeff Smith has had an allotment for 25 years and never seen anything like it. He said: "This is no ordinary rabbit. We are dealing with a monster."
The main clues to the culprit are some oversized paw prints and sightings of a cross between a hare and a rabbit with one ear larger than the other.
The allotment holders have clubbed together to hire a guard to end the bunny's eating spree.
The rabbit rampage is weirdly like the plot of Wallace and Gromit: The Curse of the Were-rabbit.
Mr Smith, 63, spotted the black and brown animal two months ago.
Some rabbits, like this one called Robert, can be huge
He said: "I have seen its prints and they are huge, bigger than a deer. It is a brute of a thing."
Heather Holmes, of the RSPCA, said the rabbit was just acting naturally: "We would urge people to explore all humane alternatives first.
"People should look to good husbandry to keep them out."
