    In the downs of a small farm, two rabbits are getting ready to flee their warren in an effort to escape the dangers of men come to kill them. Richard Adam’s Watership Down follows these two rabbits - named Hazel and Fiver - as they gather a following and make their way across the farmland to safety. The band of misfits looks to Hazel for guidance, and he leads them to their haven. A warren is established atop the hills where the rabbits are safe and sound. However, the need to keep the warren going strives the rabbits to continue exploring and find does in other warrens. They meet the Efrafa warren on their journey. This warren is lead General Woundwort, and immediately the two parties are at odds. One of the most noticeable differences is between the leaders of the two warrens: Hazel and General Woundwort. Both Hazel and General Woundwort are cunning in their own right, however the leaders use their wits in different ways; Hazel uses his wit for the betterment of his people, while General Woundwort uses his to control and oppress his people.

However, a group needs a leader (or, according to the rabbits, a warren needs a Chief Rabbit). Hazel proves himself worthy when the Owsla, or rabbit police, come to arrest some of the rabbits trying to leave. After a fight breaks out, Hazel steps forward to protect…
