Obsessed Rabbit Lady Goes to Jail for Repeat Bunny Possession

July 4, 2009

(ChattahBox)—The fear of every single middle-aged woman who lives alone and owns cats is the same. Somehow over the years, slowly but surely, becoming transformed into a crazy “cat lady,” surrounded by smelly, mewing felines when she dies alone.

But a 47-year-old Oregon woman has changed the crazy cat lady stereotype up a bit, by becoming the first-ever crazy rabbit lady and she is going to jail for her excessive bunny love.

“I’ve loved you more than any woman’s ever loved a rabbit,” said Jessica Rabbit in “Who Framed Roger Rabbit,” and Miriam Sakewitz of Tigard, Oregon surely can relate to Jessica’s obsession for Roger and his cute cotton tail and floppy ears.

Poor Miriam can relate so much in fact, that in 2006 local authorities were called to her house, where they were shocked to find 150 rabbits hopping, jumping, pooping, mating and generally making themselves at home in her tiny house.

Amid all this free bunny love, there was a darker side, however. The police also found dozens of dead bunnies in Miriam’s freezer. The hundred strong colonies of rabbits were removed from Miriam’s home and she was arrested for animal neglect.

After pleading no contest, and completing a court-ordered mental health evaluation, Miriam was sentenced to five years’ probation, with the condition that she stays away from rabbits. This condition proved to be too much for Miriam.

Just recently, Miriam began to accumulate bunnies again.

She was happily residing in a motel room, along with over one dozen bunnies, but was found out when a motel maintenance worker entered her room to repair her television, and he was treated to the horrifying spectacle of over a dozen rabbits hopping around the small motel room, complete with a stench that stopped him cold.

Miriam was arrested for violating her probation, and sentenced to 90 days in jail, without rabbits.

Perhaps another a court-ordered mental evaluation is in order; this time with some help for Miriam to kick her bunny habit and become a normal crazy cat lady.
