Rabbit-shit Crazy

People are strange.

Not the rabbit lover in question

Not the rabbit lover in question

If loving rabbits is wrong, Miriam Sakewitz doesn’t want to be right. The hare-raising tale of birth, death and lost marbles began in October 2006, when police raided Sakewitz’ Hillsboro, WA burrow and confiscated 250 rabbits. 100 of those were dead and in freezers or refrigerators. No word on if she was planning on making a HUGE caccitore.

Fast forward to January 2007, when a lonely Sakewitz hatched and executed a plan to free her confiscated fur balls. The pilfered pets and Sakewitz were found a few days later. She was holed up in a hotel room with 8 live and 2 dead rabbits. Some 130 were recovered from a farm nearby.

As Sakewitz is clearly certifiable and has a penchant for killing/letting her pets die, the court had ordered her to stop keeping rabbits. In the summer of 2007, she was sentenced to three days in jail for violating probation. Apparently, Sakewitz had canceled counseling sessions and refused to open her door for unannounced visits by her probation officer. Susan Ranger, the PO with the coolest name ever, said that although she found no rabbits, she did find a 10-pound bag of carrots, half eaten.

Sakewitz seemed to have joined the land of the normal until recently, when a hotel employee reported finding rabbits in her room. Sidenote: why is this lady always in hotel rooms? The popo confiscated 12 rabbits and one dead one from Sakewitz’s room. She was arrested and will be arraigned this afternoon.

  3. May I share a rabbit story? This is true, btw.

    So, this old guy (I work in an Assisted Living community) I know was telling me about how he and his family took a vacation years and years ago. The daughter had a pet rabbit and asked if she could bring the rabbit on vacation. Dad said no; that he would take care of the rabbit.

    Well, his version of “taking care” of the rabbit was putting it (while still alive) in the freezer. Then, when they came home, he cooked the fucking rabbit. And fed it to his family. Including his daughter.

    He relayed this story to me, as if it were a totally logical way of handling pet care. I didn’t say anything, but I’m sure the look on my face telegraphed the fact that I was thinking “No wonder she put you in a fucking home.”

  5. How did I miss this??

    Holy shit. That’s horrible. What an SOB.

    I just can’t even tell you how many of my friends have told me stories about their really SHITTY parents complaining that their kids don’t call them enough, don’t respect them enough, etc.

    You reap what you sow, assholes.

    Mr. SeaKat and I assume that if we do our jobs right, our kids will WANT to keep us up-to-date on their lives and treat us with respect.
