Rabbits are soft and furry-- but also fierce competitors.

The 2nd Annual Celebrity Rabbit Hopping Contest jumped off on Sunday in the Small Arena at the Pennsylvania Farm Show Complex in Harrisburg. Six trained rabbits, led by local celebrities, competed by hopping over obstacles during a timed race.

"Where else can you see adorable little fuzzy bunnies jumping over jumps?" rabbit trainer Christina Coder said, "You would think that whenever you see a rabbit and you really don't think that they do much, and you come here and you realize that there's actually a lot that goes on with them."

The 99th Annual Pennsylvania State FarmĀ  Show runs through Saturday, January 17th.
