Stolen Bunny?

It has been a fairly uneventful week. I took an unexpected break from blogging due to life just happening, but so all of you know I will only be blogging 2-3x per week for the summer – probably Monday, Wednesday and Friday OR Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday some weeks. There’s just too many other things on my plate right now.

The one bit of excitement we did have – besides my daughter’s birthday in which we had a cook out – was Luna, our black and white bunny, went missing. Saturday morning we discovered her gone, plus some sheet metal that was outside the barn was gone as well. This led us to count the chickens and we discovered two of them missing! We ended up calling the police because we felt violated having things stolen, not to mention the fact having had someone on our property. :-( The dispatcher was like, “Livestock too?” The policeman who came out was just as baffled as we were, but talked to our neighbors and said he’d file a report in case other thefts in the area had occurred, just in case any of them ended up being related somehow. He did think it was probably local.

The funny thing is shortly after the policeman left Luna came hopping across the road and into our field where some of the children were doing their chores. Weird. We didn’t think the bunny had escaped because of the way the cage was so bent and surely the bunny could not have bent up its cage door. However, the bunny went missing again Saturday night even after we moved the bunnies up closer to the house. Yesterday the children spotted her in the corn field behind our house. We are not allowed in the corn field due to the agreement with our landlords and the farmer renting the field, so the children made a trap with apples to lure Luna home. Thankfully she fell for it and they caught her again. We are still very confused by it all and probably will never know what really happened.

It made us wonder about our current location since our property is very accessible and in plain site of a major road, even though we are rural – the city police would not even come out, we had to go through the county sheriff’s department. All of this has made us feel unsafe. Not that we want to move, but if we found something in this area off the main “drag” we probably would consider it.

How about you, ever had anything stolen? Feel free to share in the comments below.

    That’s very strange. I haven’t had anything stolen for a long time which I’m very grateful for. My lab and pitbull might have something to do that with, lol.

  2. I don’t think I can ever live out in the country like that it would scare me. I’m so glad to hear the bunny came back

  14. I am glad that Luna came back. :( So sad to have someone steal a pet! Someone stole my pet Alaskan Malamute when I was 17…and if I think about her too much, I will even cry to this day. It takes a special jerk to steal a pet!

  15. We love bunnies, glad to hear the good news!

  16. What a relief the bunny returned home! I would have been a wreck if one of my animals had gone missing.

  17. Yes back when we lived in Arkansas my kids left their bikes out front and my son had two bikes stolen, we realized after that, that we needed to put them in the garage every night. People are sad.

  18. Cindy Orley says:

    Thankfully we’ve not had anything stolen, especially not an animal. That would be hard to explain to your kids.

  19. So glad she is back!

    No, never had anything stolen BUT our car was broken into about two weeks ago…. fortunately, I don’t keep anything in it AND the would-be-thief was scared off by something/one. He left behind a bike and a garage door opener, both of which (it turned out) had been stolen from other houses on our street. CRAZY – I did NOT sleep well for several nights after!

  20. Oh my Rachel! That is amazing he left things behind that belonged to your neighbors. Glad he was scared off by something!

  21. I’m really glad the bunny is back, but that’s awful that people are stealing! I had all the extra wood from our deck stolen once from a neighbor 2 doors down. They didn’t even try to hide it either.

    My husband had his favorite coat stolen out of our car. Not fun. I’m glad your bunny is back.

  23. Glad the bunny is back… thieves should be…..
