Bunny burglary in Spokane:

Children at a downtown preschool got an unplanned lesson in animal rights activism when their pet rabbit was stolen and anti-circus fliers were left in the animal’s cage.

Sugar Bunny vanished from the Community Building Children’s Center during a celebration of building renovations Saturday evening, teachers said.

“Somebody stoled him,” 5-year-old Zion told The Spokesman-Review, which gave only the first names of him and other children in a report on the heist. “I’m sad.”

PETA goons are suspected. Check the teachers’ reaction:

Teachers gathered the children in a circle Monday to remember Sugar Bunny, some by drawing pictures and others by writing songs.

“We talked about how some people have different ideas about animals,” [teacher Lori Peters said]. “Some people don’t think they should be in cages.”

A better lesson for those kids: some people are thieves.

UPDATE: Site of Sugar Bunny’s theft corrected.
