Bunny Lady Behind Bars

(what's not to love?)

And now, for the lighter side of the news ...

An Oregon woman who was apparently obsessed with bunnies was arrested at a hotel on Wednesday, "after an employee reported finding rabbits hopping around in her room."

According to a report on yahoo, the woman had hundreds of rabbits in her home at one point. I will spare you the details. Let's just say they were not all hopping around. She "was sentenced in April 2007 to five years probation and ... was told not to go within 100 yards of a rabbit."

Shortly thereafter, her probation officer became suspicious when the woman would not allow her past the front door. The officer "said she found no rabbits when she finally got inside but did find a half-empty 10-pound bag of carrots."

Ok, now I'm sure this is a serious situation. But can you imagine the conversation between the police and this woman?

Police: Ma'am, please open the door.

Bunny Lady: What's up, doc?

Police: Very funny. We can hear those hopping noises.

BL: Uh... it's just me! (hopping up and down)

Police: There's fur all over your t-shirt.

BL: It's dandruff. The hopping makes it fall faster.

Police: What's that 10-pound bag of carrots for?

BL: What, it's against the law to eat carrots?

Police: Ma'am, please. Stop hopping, and put down the carrots. Just hand over the bunnies and nobody will get hurt. (talking into the walkie-talkie) Need some backup here. Send Elmer. Don't ask.



  1. It's nice to know our streets are safe again!

  2. Very funny. Bet it smelled real good too.
