Bunny Ears Are Up

Remember Elmyra from Tiny Toons? If Elmyra had grown up and specifically loved rabbits, she would have grown up to be Miriam Sakewitz. Apparently Miriam can't get enough of bunnies. She was previous caught with "nearly 250 rabbits in her home, including about 100 dead ones in freezers and refrigerators." After that, she was placed on a five year probation, banned from owning animals, and restricted from going within 100 yards of a rabbit.

Unfortunately, Miriam did not learn her lesson. She was recently arrested for possession of rabbit, after a hotel employee found bunnies in her hotel room. Apparently she fell off the bunny wagon.

Okay, Miriam, I like bunnies, too. But leave them alone.

My favorite part of the article? The tip-off for police:

"...Probation officer Susan Ranger testified in August of 2007 that Sakewitz had a rabbit in her home in June, had canceled counseling sessions and refused to open the door for unannounced visits.

Ranger said she found no rabbits when she finally got inside but did find a half-empty 10-pound bag of carrots. Sakewitz was sentenced to three days in jail."

The bag of carrots gets 'em every time!
