British Bunny Picks Up Parking Ticket



A lop-eared rabbit from northwest England has picked up a parking ticket that is well beyond its means, pet shop owner Cliff Chamberlain said on Friday.
Chamberlain said he drove off before a traffic warden could slap the ticket on his van outside the shop. The frustrated official then stuck the ticket to the creature's hutch on the pavement.

Chamberlain said zealous traffic wardens made loading and unloading animals from his Eccles pet shop extremely difficult.

"Somebody makes up all these rules and they have messed up," he told Reuters.

A parking official said tickets were only valid if they were handed straight to the driver or stuck to the vehicle.

The bunny's sudden fame has encouraged a number of potential buyers but Chamberlain insists it is not for sale.
