Killer rabbit, killer rabbit, killer rabbit / One Cup of Java Challenge

Today's One Cup of Java, heard at 8:20am on Your Morning Brew:

It’s been a long week, so we’ll take it easier on you today for the One Cup of Java Challenge. Jimmy Carter had a lot of bad days, perhaps none as bizarre as the day he had on this date in 1979, when a swamp rabbit attempted to board his boat in Georgia, leading to the AP headline “Carter Fights Killer Rabbit.” The killer rabbit reference, of course, comes from a famous 1975 film. Your One Cup question – an easy one on this Friday morning – what 1975 film featured a great killer rabbit scene?

One Cup answer: Monty Python and the Holy Grail
Shown here are photos of Carter's killer rabbit and a scene from the film.
Bonus Blog Trivia: There is some speculation that it was not a rabbit, but instead a nutria, a large web-footed rodent, known to be aggressive and now a well-established pest species in the South.
