giant bunny

United Airlines is investigating the death of a giant rabbit which was being transported on one of its planes. The 90cm-long bunny, called Simon, was found dead in the cargo hold when the flight arrived at Chicago’s O’Hare airport from London Heathrow.

Reports in UK media say the continental giant rabbit was being delivered to a new “celebrity” owner. United, which has had a torrid few weeks of bad publicity, said it was “saddened” by Simon’s death.

Owner Annette Edwards told the paper: “Simon had a vet’s check-up three hours before the flight and was fit as a fiddle. “Something very strange has happened and I want to know what. I’ve sent rabbits all around the world and nothing like this has happened before.”
