Playboy model offers $1.3K reward for return of world’s biggest bunny

She brings new meaning to “Playboy Bunny.”

A former Playboy model and famed bunny breeder is offering the equivalent of $1,300 for the return of her world-record-holding bunny, which was stolen from its Worcestershire home over the weekend.

“A very sad day. Guinness world record Darius has been stolen from his home,” tweeted the UK’s Annette Edwards of her 10-year-old Continental Rabbit, which at 4-feet-4-inches long holds the Guinness World Record for World’s Longest Rabbit. 

“The police are doing their best to find out who has taken him. There is a reward of a £1,000,” Edwards added.

The identity of the bunny burglars remains yet unclear.

The theft marks a heartbreaking blow for the 68-year-old mother of 10 and former glamour model, who has held the world record since 2008 with four of her animals capturing the title, the Daily Mail reported.

And while Darius currently holds the colossal cottontail crown, he is slated to be eclipsed by his offspring, Lewis and Daisy May, who both already measure over 4 feet long. 

Unfortunately, 35-pound Darius is too old to breed now — but his plus-size progeny once sold for nearly $350.

Raising such a humongous hare is no mean feat. Edwards spends nearly $7,000 to feed her behemoth bunnies the carrots and apples required to maintain their massive size. She says the secret to breeding them big is to make sure the parents are huge and not to interbreed.

Edwards is so enamored with bunnies that she’s taken pains to become one: She reportedly dropped over $13,500 on cheek implants, chin implants, and a breast lift in an effort to resemble Jessica Rabbit, the cartoon sexpot from “Who Framed Roger Rabbit.”

A spokesman for West Mercia Police confirmed to the Daily Mail they were investigating the bunny theft: “We are appealing for information following the theft of an award winning rabbit from its home in Stoulton, Worcestershire,” officer Daren Riley told the outlet. “It is believed the Continental Giant rabbit was stolen from its enclosure in the garden of the property of its owners overnight on Saturday April 10 to April 11.”

Meanwhile, this isn’t the first time tragedy has befallen one of Edwards’ beloved bunnies. In 2017, Darius’ son Simon — who was then predicted to become the world’s largest rabbit — mysteriously died during a United Airlines flight from London to clients in the US. 

The flight firm dug themselves deeper after cremating the 3-foot-long rabbit without the owner’s permission, sparking suspicion that they were hiding something.

“The whole thing stinks of a cover-up,” fumed the hopping mad breeder at the time, adding that she’s “sent rabbits all around the world and nothing like this has happened before.”

United Airlines was later sued by Simon’s prospective buyers in Iowa.
