Figured that I could cut the hair from it and then pitch the hairless carcass. After inspection I noticed it was glued to a plastic mouse like form and some of the skin was loss at the seams. A little tug and it peeled off like a orange. For some reason I felt better not saving a a fake mouse to make flies.
The fur was a lot of guard hairs and a fluffy under fur. Likely not one of our local field rabbit. I was still enthusiastic about my cheap stash of material. So then I tried some Hares Ears as pictured below.

I like it and am going to tie more. What do you all think? Comments welcome.
Dedicated to my son. I love you :)
