Ex-Playboy Model Raises Reward For The Return Of Her World Record Bunny

Ex-Playboy Englishwoman Annette Edwards, who’s been in the news this week after her Guinness Book of World Records rabbit was kidnapped, announced Tuesday night that she’s raising the reward for the return of her beloved Darius. The four foot, 50-pound big boy went missing over the weekend and now it is believed that the rabbit was the subject of a kidnapping.

Why would someone kidnap a 50-pound rabbit? This isn’t just some ordinary heavyweight rabbit. He’s on record as the world’s largest rabbit, per Guinness researchers. Edwards told NBC’s Today show in 2010 that Darius thinks of himself as a dog and likes to eat at the table and lays across her lap for pets while watching television.

One thing the kidnappers probably weren’t prepared for is the consumption level of this big boy. Edwards told Today that Darius munches down a bowl of rabbit food, two apples, a dozen carrots and half a cabbage — EACH DAY!

As you’d expect, losing Darius has been quite hard on Ms. Edwards, 68, who states on her website that she’s “worked all over the world including Playboy in New York, magazine & T.V. work all over Europe, won Miss Birmingham age 29, been the face of Nivea.”

Along with the increased reward, Annette has a message for the kidnappers. “Darius is to old to breed now. So please bring him back,” she wrote on social media. According to a rabbit welfare site out of the U.K., a Continental Giant rabbit like Darius has a lifespan of 4-6 years, which means he is at the twilight of his life and clearly just wants to lay around eating carrots and be petted by Annette.

To the scumbag out there who swiped Big D, do the right thing. Take the big boy down to the local police station and turn him in. It’s not worth it. Don’t go down in a hail of bullets over a 50-pound bunny.
