Dangerous rabbit ‘terrorizing’ residents of Iowa neighborhood
Run away! Run away!
An adorable but menacing rabbit is reportedly “terrorizing” residents of an Iowa neighborhood — and it’s not the Killer Rabbit of Caerbannog from the cult-classic film, “Monty Python and the Holy Grail.”
The black bunny has been lurking around the streets of Perry, a suburb of Des Moines, and aggressively attacking people, according to KCCI.
Two people have reported being bitten by the vicious beast. One person captured a video of the rabbit quickly turning around and lunging at their feet.
Ramona Rustan said she was one of the rabbit’s victims.
“It jumps up and bites me,” Rustan told the outlet. “I am like, ‘Oh, my gosh. I just got bit by a bunny.’”
The bunny then continued its terror spree at her next-door neighbor’s house, she said.
“It came around to her car and wouldn’t let her out of her car,” Rustan said. “When she did get out of her car, it chased her up to her door.”
Rustan then decided to call the police, who told her that they were aware of a rabbit “terrorizing people,” in the area, she said.
A police report obtained by KCCI shows that police responded to a report of a 13-year-old girl neighbor of Rustan who was bitten by the rabbit.
The teenager got a rabies shot after the attack, according to the report.
Rustan said she was “not worried about rabies because, when it bit me, you know, I didn’t see it frothing at the mouth or anything like that.”
Police finally caught the bad-tempered rodent on Friday and took it to the local wastewater treatment plant where it was then released.
There have been no reported sightings of the critter in the neighborhood since.
