3 rabbits. 3 ears

How do you draw three rabbits so that each has two ears, yet there are only three ears total among all rabbits?

And why would you want to?

From 581 AD China to the British isles, the three-hares puzzle has taken several forms. It stretches across several cultures, religions and timeframes. Churches of a certain timeframe in Devon have a plenitude of them. No one knows exactly why. However, in ancient times rabbits were thought to give birth without mates = that is, a virgin birth, which gave them something in common with the Virgin Mary.

Solve the puzzle of the Three Hares! Be sure and visit this site for some lovely examples.
