Idaho police tell man to stop wearing bunny suit
Reuters ^ | August 3, 2011 | Laura Zuckerman

SALMON, Idaho (Reuters) - Police in Idaho Falls said on Tuesday they have told a 34-year-old man to stop wearing a bunny suit in public after residents complained that he has been frightening children.

Police warned Idaho Falls resident William Falkingham after a woman said she saw him dressed in the costume, peeking at her young son from behind a tree and pointing his finger like a gun, according to a police report.

An investigation of the sighting led officers to question other neighbors, "who expressed that they were greatly disturbed by Falkingham and his bunny suit," the report said.

Neighbors also reported that Falkingham occasionally wears a tutu with the bunny suit, police said in a statement.

Everything is illegal. Why even try to live within the law? They’ll get you when they want to get you.

Is that the same bunny that scared Jimmy Carter?

All he has to do is say he is Muslim of the Bunhoppi sect, and nothing more will be said. He can wear his bunny suit in court, in drivers license photos, even keep it if he goes to prison.

It is a free country...isn’t it? If the guy wants to wear a bunny suit, whats wrong with that? As to aiming at kids and scaring them...that’s a threatening thing and another story.

He might be running for Wu’s old spot...

But Wu has to actually resign, not just say he’s going to resign...

I think we need more characters in suits like this in D.C.

We might actually make some progress...Or not...At least it’ll be interesting to watch...

Are “people who wear bunny suits and occasionally wear tutus” one of those “protected classes”?

Did the recent census include a check-box for that category?

I honestly can’t keep track anymore.

Did Ralphie move to Idaho? He looked like a deranged Easter bunny!

Cue Bob Wills and the Texas Playboys singing “The Bunny Hop”.

Cue Gene Autry singing “Here comes Peter Cottontail, hoppin down the bunny trail”

Cue Tennessee Ernie Ford singing “Shotgun Boogie”! “Look out bunny rabbit for you soon will be in the pot”!

If he’s stalking children it’s time for him to be the guest of honor at a blanket party. No need for The Law. Just don’t get caught. That’s what the blanket is for.

The correct thing to do, right now, would be for one hundred Citizens to show up at the police station dressed in Bunny Suits, waving signs, and hollering at the top of their lungs.

I don't think the bunny suit, per se, is the problem here. The guy is acting as a public nuisance and likely has some serious mental issues.

Actually, I think he might have been okay until he made a gun out of his fingers and aimed it at someone.

That’s awfully threatening, don’t ya know!

When I was a wee lad, we use to hear stories of “The Bunny Man” running around the area with an axe. Made for one terrifying Halloween when my older brother (then in high school) got a hold of a bunny suit... Older brothers suck! ;-)

Bugs: "It's true, Doc - I'm a wabbit. Would you like to shoot me now or wait 'till you get home? "

Daffy: "Shoot him now! Shoot him now!"

Bugs: "YOU keep 'outta this. He doesn't HAVE to shoot you now."

Daffy: "Oh, yes he DOES have to shoot me now. I DEMAND that you shoot me now!"

(*BAM*)

Daffy (muttering to Bugs): "Let's run through that again".

Bugs: "OK"
"Would you like to shoot me now or wait 'till you get home."

Daffy: "Shoot him now, shoot him now!"

Bugs: "You keep out of this, he doesn't have to shoot you now."

Daffy: "AHA! That's it! Hold it right there!"
(sotto voce, to the camera): "Pronoun trouble! "
(Back to Bugs) "It's not "He doesn't have to shoot YOU now," it's "He doesn't have to shoot..ME now." "
"Well I say he DOES have to shoot me now! So shoot me now!"

(*BAM!*)

“I don't think the bunny suit, per se, is the problem here. The guy is acting as a public nuisance and likely has some serious mental issues.”

Well said. Here in the neighboring state of Washington, they empty onto the streets from the mental hospitals these sorts of public nuisances all the time. My parents had one living next door to them that would often stand in her front yard naked and yell at people driving buy. One of these nuts once slipped into my parents motor home and hid in the bathroom, only to be discovered when they left for a weekend trip and she tried to slip out while they stopped for gas nearly 40 miles away from home.

There is an organization out there called the Furries, made up of people who get their jollies by dressing up as animals.
They hold an annual convention here in Pittsburgh, during which a walk downtown can be quite....umm....interesting.

I am sure the Furries have a Civil Rights Division with lots of Lawyahs who will shortly be coming to his defense.
