Benny the Bunny has been in camera (in more ways than one) for the past week. Benny was bunny-napped here in Itty Bitty Town approximately a week ago. This unspeakable event made the front page of the Itty Bitty Town Newspaper where they spoke on and on about it.
It seems that Benny left a note upon his "leaving" that said he would be gone for a few days. He even signed the note himself! (Itty Bitty Town is not without its talent, I can tell you!)
This week, Benny made the front page once again - along with his photo - under the headline "Bunny Returns!" The bunny-napper had, apparently, groomed him to a fare-thee-well and, perhaps reluctantly, finally returned him to his hutch where he has since been receiving extra treats in addition to the day-old veggies he regularly receives from a nearby local market.
Meanwhile, for other news, we turn now to the:
* Five frames of Beehives - holding an estimated 10,000 honeybees were reported stolen from a local residence on the evening of June 11th. Officers said the owner, a 76-year-old man, said they were worth about $150. There were no suspects.
* A 2007 Lexus driven by a 59-year-old Phoenix woman collided with a 2005 Nissan pickup driven by a 30-year-old Westport, WA man. Officers say the Lexus was backing up and rammed the Nissan when it was still in its parking spot. The woman was cited for "unsafe backing" and released.
(Yeah! Unsafe backing! That's it!)
* Harrassment charges were brought against a 51-year-old local man. Angry at being discharged from the hospital against his will, the man reportedly phoned police and said he was at the nearby grocery store and intended to heave a brick through the store window. They arrived moments later to find him with brick in hand, window intact. He was arrested without incident and jailed.
(Sounds like the poor guy should have been taken back to the hospital)
* The local School of Massage reportedly incurred about $100 in damages sometime in the early morning hours of June 8, said police. The owner told them a bag of peat moss had been torn open and dragged across the parking lot and a box of strawberries had been strewn about as well. There were no suspects.
