PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — Anyone in Portland seen a giant white rabbit?
Seriously, police say Bonnie, a 19-pound Flemish Giant white rabbit, was stolen in late June from a hutch outside her owner’s southeast Portland home. They are investigating the theft.
Although her owner sometimes dressed Bonnie in a hoodie, police Sgt. Pete Simpson said Wednesday in a statement that the rabbit was not wearing the clothing item when she was abducted in late June.
He says the rabbit’s owner told police that a few weeks earlier, a woman claiming to be a “rabbit advocate” came to the door, offering information on how to care for the creature.
Simpson says police don’t know whether that incident is related to Bonnie’s disappearance.
Theft of a companion animal is a Class C felony in Oregon.
