Are we sure it wasn't Bugs Bunny simply making a wrong turn in Albuquerque?

How can you dig a tunnel near Miami? Isn't the ground water level about 6" below grade?

The water table is so close to the surface that it can actually pop empty swimming pools out of the ground during rainy periods.

I don't know, forcing the wench to pull a wagon like an animal sounds pretty demeaning.

I wonder if the people who dreamed this up watched "The Great Escape" one too many times?

I can just see Charles Bronson riding that little wagon get buried under a collapsing tunnel and getting pulled back by the others.
