Volunteers at a city animal care group are offering a $1,000 reward for the safe return of a bunny stolen from the shelter on E. 110th St. Here’s everything you need to know.
No, this isn’t the next installment of Liam Neeson’s “Taken” franchise. It’s one of those stories that make you say “aww” and “WTF” simultaneously. What is the price of the life of a rabbit? Apparently, it’s 1000 dollars, or at least it is to the volunteers at the Animal Care Center on E. 110th Street in NYC.
Volunteers at a city animal care group have offered a $1,000 reward for the return of a rabbit stolen from their facility on June 14th. The money has been generated from the aides themselves, whom I can only imagine have developed an incomparable fondness for the little gray furry creature. With rent how it is in this city, I find it hard to imagine paying $1000 dollars for the return of my grandmother.
A spokesman for the organization said that the thief had been turned away from adopting a dog, obviously somewhat disgruntled, and taking full advantage the open-cage policy, the perp grabbed the rabbit instead.
The rabbit in question, Sunny, was in a cage with her sister Honey when she was rabbit-napped. The group will pay the reward for the safe return of Sunny at any of the agency’s shelters.
The group at the shelter will pay the reward for the safe return of Sunny at any of the agency’s shelters. We asked Sunny’s sister for a statement but she declined to comment.
