Muggers snatched an Austrian woman’s handbag unaware that it contained nothing but a dead rabbit.
The two thieves struck as Hilda Morgenstein, 42, was about to catch a train at Baden to the countryside with her daughter to bury the pet. The joke will be on the robbers once they find out that their loot contains nothing but a hare carcass.
Morgenstein said: “They saved us the trip – I told my daughter they were angels and were taking bunny to a better place.”
Police are still searching for the pair and the remains of the rabbit.
I wonder what the black market price is for a dead bunny is?
