Bunny held for $100 dollar ransom

A teenage boy has been charged with stealing a pet bunny and trying to extort money from the bunny’s owner.

The 17-year old, from Portland, Maine, is accused of breaking into another teen’s apartment and stealing the gray pygmy rabbit.

Police said he then telephoned the rabbit’s owner demanding repayment of a $100 (£50) debt or else the rabbit would be hurt.

Police Lt. Tony Ward said officers recovered the rabbit in good condition.

The teenager faces charges of burglary and theft in connection with the break-in.

The juvenile also faces charges of robbery, assault and terrorizing following a confrontation last Friday in which he allegedly stole another teen’s skateboard, backpack and pocket money.
