PLYMOUTH, England, - A woman in England says her family's pet rabbit apparently scared off a nighttime burglar.
Kimberley May of Plymouth, England, said she and her family heard the rabbit, Toby, thump on the floor loudly five times in the early hours Thursday and they went downstairs a few hours later to find burglars had taken items including a WWI medal and gifts for her upcoming wedding , the Plymouth Herald reported Friday.
"We think that when the rabbit thumped it scared the burglar off and they left all the stuff they were going to take," May said. "They managed to take a laptop, an iPad and my handbag with my purse and everything in, but the worse thing was my great granddad's medal."
She said Toby, a British Giant bunny who stands at 2 feet and 10 inches tall, was "traumatized" by the incident.
"He's usually really friendly but he tried to go for the policeman," May said.
Police are investigating the incident.
She’s lucky the “Bobee’s” didn’t shoot the rabbit and have a rabbit pie at the station the next day. No doubt this poor lady will be arrested for possession of an “assualt rabbit”!
rabbits will thump for many reasons. they can produce a serious sound thumping their hocks on the floor. this big boy probably made a very loud thump.
danger. a warning. something is really different than normal.
i speak from experience.
Good thing the burglars did not bring the Royal Hand Grenade.
Don’t ever underestimate Thumper —
Rabbit scared off a burglar.
Did the burglar happen to look like Peanuts Carter?
That would be The Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch, by the way..
Proves Pierced Moron right, they don’t need guns in England, just a killer bunny...
Thanks for the correction, the memory is like a box of chocolates.........
Instructions, parts manuals, and support information for almost everything is available on the web these days... ;-)
“That rabbit’s dynamite!”
Killer Bunny ping
“They managed to take a laptop, an iPad and my handbag with my purse and everything in, but the worse thing was my great granddad’s medal.”
If the rabbit had been able to rack a 12-gauge they wouldn’t have even taken that much.
First shalt thou take out the Holy Pin. Then shalt thou count to three, no more, no less. Three shall be the number thou shalt count, and the number of the counting shall be three. Four shalt thou not count, neither count thou two, excepting that thou then proceed to three. Five is right out. Once the number three, being the third number, be reached, then lobbest thou thy Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch towards thy foe, who, being naughty in my sight, shall snuff it.
It’s not my fault!
I like that he leaped at the investigating Bobby.
