If it didn't catch your attention this morning, a hare was seen in Dublin Airport with a cigarette in its mouth.
We're not joking.

Louise Acheson took to Twitter today to share a picture of the hare going about its daily business, captioning the snap "#nothingtodeclhare."
After it grabbed the attention of many on social media, Dublin Airport has now hit back, claiming that it was not a cigarette in the animal's mouth, but rather an "overgrown tooth."
Sorry to spoil all the online jokes, but don't think that hare has a cigarette in its mouth. It's more likely an overgrown tooth. https://t.co/QyoQnyRRkt

The company took to Twitter, commenting on the picture, saying "Sorry to spoil all the online jokes, but don't think that hare has a cigarette in its mouth. It's more likely an overgrown tooth."
People are now fighting back, telling the airport not to ruin their Monday morning banter.

@DublinAirport Now listen here Dublin Airport. It's monday. It's grey out. It's not Christmas week. If we want it to be a cigarette, it's a cigarette, ok!?
