Literal MeaningThe rabbit startled by the boom.
English ProverbMake a mountain out of a molehill
The rabbit is a small nervous animal, prey to many. So it must be alert to any small sounds that could be a predator approaching. It has large ears so that it can hear the tiniest noise and react to it. That tiny sound could be just an innocent rain drop falling on a leaf, or the wind through the grass. But an over cautious rabbit may react to this and run. This, of course, is an over-reaction to a situation or event, which is what this proverb describes.
