TAKEHARA, Japan, March 23 (UPI) -- A visitor to Japan's "Rabbit Island," a small island inhabited by hundreds of rabbits, was filmed being swarmed by bunnies when he offered them carrots.

A video posted to YouTube by My BB Bunny shows a man interacting with the rabbits on Okunoshima, a small island in the city of Takehara that is informally known as "Rabbit Island" due to being overrun with hundreds of rabbits.

The rabbits on the island are considered wild, but they are very friendly toward human visitors, especially when food is involved.

The video shows the man feeding carrots to an ever-increasing number of rabbits on the island until he is completely covered in bunnies.
