Awww. So sweet for Sid to find the stone and respected enough to clean it up.
She's Crafty
Should search that area for more signs of a home, family, other interesting items

I misunderstood the title of the video. I thought it meant that whoever was buried in the grave had lived to be 130 years old! But, it was the GRAVE ITSELF that was 130 years old! Furthermore, I assumed that the grave contained the remains of a human, not an animal.
Unless you dig it up or run some type of ground-penetrating radar over it, you have no idea what's in there. The carving of a rabbit does not mean a rabbit is buried there.
Cool but not that uncommon
You're making an awful assumption that this was an animal's grave. What if little Duchie was in fact a 12 year old little girl or boy who, just so happened to like or have a pet rabbit? Maybe this was his or her favorite place to play in the woods, and, as it turns out, a nice, fitting final resting place.

While wandering through an old cemetery, i came across a tombstone for an infant child. He was born on Nov. 7, 1949, and died Nov. 7, 1949. Evidently, he had lived only a few hours. That in itself is not so uncommon. But it did make me wonder why one child is born and soon after dies, while another continues to live on. My birthday is Nov. 7, 1949.
As an added note, often people come across tombstones that are illegible. If you ever want to know what it says, carry some white butcher paper and a piece of charcoal with you. Put the paper over the inscription and then rub it with the charcoal. Often it becomes legible then.

When I was a kid we found 3 grave stones in the woods from the 1800s. It was near a holiday park in Georgia.

Halloween Party For Galápagos Tortoise Man Finds A 130-Year-Old Tombstone In The Woods, 1 day ago   01:07

The San Diego Zoo’s oldest residents, the Galápagos tortoises, proved age is nothing but a number this morning, as they celebrated the Halloween season with a yummy pumpkin breakfast. The senior citizens group—led by Grandma, the oldest member at approximately 130 years old—had a great time chomping down on delicious pumpkins, while animal care staff looked on.

Galápagos tortoises are the giants of the tortoise world, with males weighing more than 500 pounds and females weighing an average of 250 pounds. The San Diego Zoo currently has 13 of these supersize tortoises; nine of them arrived at the Zoo in 1928, and the other four joined the herd later. Animal care staff estimates all of the tortoises, with the exception of one, are over the age of 90, making them among some of the oldest animals on the planet. Staff members say their steady behavior and longevity makes them a favorite of Zoo guests.

“I can’t tell you how many people are absolutely amazed when they come to the exhibit,” said Jonny Carlson, San Diego Zoo reptile keeper. “They’re surprised at just how big or old the tortoises are, and that's just something you can't appreciate without seeing them in person.”

The International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) classifies the Galápagos tortoise as a vulnerable species. Modern conservation efforts have helped increase population numbers after human hunting almost wiped out the species. Today, the tortoises face threats from nonnative species, such as rats, dogs and cats, which eat tortoise eggs and young tortoises. San Diego Zoo Global partners with the Charles Darwin Research Station on the Galápagos Islands to help with breeding and to give the hatchlings a headstart by protecting them until they are old enough to survive on their own.

Zoo visitors can see Grandma and the other Galápagos tortoise seniors at Reptile Mesa in the Discovery Outpost area of the Zoo. Grandma is smaller than her roommates and tends to stay in one location, moving only when she feels it is necessary.
