Back in 2010, Carl Pyrdum posted this medieval manuscript marginalia, founded on a text in the British Museum. It depicts a kind of Sergio Argones story about rabbits chasing down a hunting hound, trying it, and hanging it. There's also a delightfully gruesome coda.
But the rabbits, it turns out, are not hunters at all. They’re some sort of rabbit police force. Next stop for the hound is the rabbit judicial system, where he stands trial before a rabbit judge... It’s unclear if the jury was made up of hounds or hares, but the verdict is swift and certain. The hound is bound and carried in a cart to the gallows... For you see, the sentence was death by hanging.
