Harold was not really a rabbit even though he had certain Leporidae characteristics; long ears, elongated hind legs, with four toes on each foot, and shorter fore legs, with five toes each. He was too big to be a rabbit as he stood about 1.5 meters and liked to wear tailored suits and bespoke shoes. After many failed attempts to blend in with the rabbit habitats and general lifestyle, he gave up.

In 1881, Harold moved to Brooklyn and was hired as a teller at the Williamsburg Savings Bank on Driggs Avenue. He worked at several locations of the bank for over 100 years, including a stint at the Walt Whitman Mall in Suffolk County. When Williamsburg Savings Bank merged with the Manhattan Savings Bank in the 1980s, Harold threw up a peace sign and promptly retired.

Years later, sightings of Harold were reported as a “large, smiling rabbit-like being” who held up a peace sign living in the Pine Barrens of New Jersey. The story was featured on a cable-access program about cryptids that aired at 2am after an infomercial about a spray-on hair product aimed balding men.
