 RJS Sep 25, 2001 Why doesn't he just bring them in the following order: lettuce,wolf,rabbit.Or wolf lettuce rabbit mrice Oct 04, 2001 Because, if he leaves with the lettuce, the wolf will eat the rabbit. rohddawg Apr 02, 2002 or... bring the rabbit... go get the wolf... then take the rabbit back... take the lettuce to the wolf... then go get that damned rabbit :p.... and i've seen this type of thing before but with a coyote, chicken, and feed ragsdaleam Jul 20, 2005 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. Rob2003 Oct 22, 2005 i heard this 1 twice with a dog cat and mice. the other 1 was wit some cannabols and a miscinaries how ever u spell them Ammer Sep 25, 2006 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. lifeisgood812 Nov 18, 2006 How did the man make it this far without the wolf eating the rabbit or the rabbit eating the lettuce? NoriMori Jan 22, 2015 This is one of my favourite riddles, though it's very common. I first heard it in a short story I read as a kid.
