Rabbit Nabbed After Attack Spree

An actual article in the Central Maine Morning Sentinal from 12 July, 1997:


ASHLAND, Mass (no souce credited)-- Snowball, a pet rabbit that escaped from its cage and terrorized this Boston Suburb for two weeks, was back behind bars Friday and facing execution for a rabies test.

"Society is safe again," Ashland Police Officer William Foster said. The cwazy wabbit stalked the neighborhood, attacking three adults and a 2-year-old child.

But the bunny was nabbed Friday by one of its victims, a 76-year-old man who caught it in a long handled net he and his grandson use for fishing.

Diana Morrison, who was scratched by the rabbit and whose husband and young daughter also were attacked, said she was upset that the rabbit would be killed so that a sample of its brain tissue could be tested for rabies.
