The Crazy Rabbit Lady

Check out the wordplay utilized by the reporter/editors who wrote this story:

PORTLAND, Ore. Washington County's "Bunny Lady" is back in the hutch after violating a court order banning her from owning animals for five years. Miriam Sakewitz, 47, was arrested Tuesday at a hotel in the Portland suburb of Tigard after an employee reported finding rabbits hopping around in her room.

Sakewitz was sentenced in April 2007 to five years probation and was banned from owning or controlling animals. She also was told not to go within 100 yards of a rabbit.

That summer, Sakewitz was ordered to spend three days in jail for violating her probation by keeping a rabbit in her house. County probation officer Susan Ranger also said Sakewitz had canceled counseling sessions and refused to open the door for unannounced visits. Ranger said she found no rabbits when she finally got inside but did find a half-empty 10-pound bag of carrots.

Here's a pic of Mrs. Bugs:

And here is the caption that accompanied the photo; notice more tongue-in-cheek writing:

This undated photo released by the Tigard Police Department shows Miriam Sakewitz, who was arrested in 2007 with more than 250 rabbits in squalid conditions. In a plea deal, she was forbidden to have animals for five years. On Tuesday, authorities say she was found holed up in a hotel room in Tigard, Ore., with more than a dozen rabbits and was arrested.

Holed up with rabbits. *wink*

Which calls to mind...
