Some bunny is in trouble after an abandoned rabbit at Australia’s Adelaide Airport caused a serious bomb scare.
On the evening of June 27, police and explosive experts arrived at the air hub to investigate a suspicious shopping bag abandoned in the women’s restroom, Newsweek reported.
Upon examination, authorities were shocked to discover that the scare was simply a hare: a male dwarf rabbit.
“We treat everything in the aviation space very seriously, but our bomb appraisal officers certainly weren’t expecting to find a rabbit in unattended baggage,” Commander Brett McCann said, adding that it was “certainly an unusual situation.”
In good spirits and wearing a red harness, the rabbit had no forms of identification. Police soon passed the critter off to Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (RSPCA) officials, ABC reported.
“This is the first job of this kind that I’ve come across in my 26 years of service with RSPCA,” responder Nalika Van Loenen said. “The young male rabbit is clearly very well socialized and cared for.”
“The police had put him in a large box and gotten some carrots from Subway, so he had some fresh shredded carrot to munch on while they waited for me to arrive,” she added.
The rabbit is under the care of the RSPCA for the time being, and animal welfare officers feel “hoptimistic” that they will learn more information on its origins.
“Don’t worry, be hoppy, the bunny is in the safe care of RSPCA South Australia and is no worse fur wear. He doesn’t seem to carrot all about all the fuss. Lettuce hop someone can help find out who abandoned him at the hareport,” Australian police wrote on Facebook in a post that has since been liked over 5,000 times.
Hopefully, the little critter will soon find his hoppily ever after with a safe, loving home.
