At first glance this does look like conflict but I believe this are actually a pair of Irish Dancing Hares, as they're called, native to only the western counties of Clare, Limerick, Galway and Kerry. Their courtship behavior is unique in the animal world because, although many species engage in mating dances, these rare hares gather in groups of eight or ten or more pairs in secluded little glens deep in the forest and dance for hours, especially on spring nights when the moon is full. The prominent Irish leptologist Dr. Sean Wexford reports having seen sixteen mating pairs of hares dancing one night in County Clare, with juvenile and older hares gathered round in a circle patting their hind feet and clapping their front paws together to keep time.
