The longest bunny in the world has gone missing, police say.
Darius, the Continental Giant rabbit, was reportedly stolen from his home in Stoulton, U.K., on Saturday night, West Mercia Police said Monday. Darius is the current record holder for the longest rabbit alive, measuring in at 4 feet, 3 inches (129 cm), according to Guinness World Records (GWR).
His owner, former Playboy model and rabbit breeder Annette Edwards, 69, tweeted about her missing pet on Sunday, offering a $1,375.40 USD (£1,000) reward to have him returned.
Edwards raised the reward on Tuesday, tweeting: “Please Please I am so upset Can you bring my Darius back I am putting the reward up to £2,000.”
According to DailyMail.com, Edwards has owned more than 100 rabbits as a breeder and has owned the world’s longest rabbit since 2008.
