Because, if he leaves with the lettuce, the wolf will eat the rabbit.

I agree, there is another solution to this puzzle. The man takes the rabbit across and leaves it, then he comes back alone. Then he takes the wolf across and comes back with the rabbit. He leaves the rabbit and takes the lettuce across. He leaves the lettuce with the wolf, goes back by himself, and then brings the rabbit to the other side.

I like this brain-teaser, it's really cool, but I have heard of it before. Same as the comment on top with a wolf, chicken, and seeds. I was going to submit it, but I guess you already submited it, oh well.

How did the man make it this far without the wolf eating the rabbit or the rabbit eating the lettuce?
