The intense boxing game between two hares

Hares can look sweet, but when March and April come around and their mating season starts, they get aggressive. Male hares don't fight for the female's attention but a frantic tussle may happen when the female rejects the persistent pursuit of the male. 

An intense "boxing game" between a female and a male hare was captured in Cairngorms National Park, Scotland, on March 23, 2020. The fight lasted around three minutes.
