Police tell man he can't wear his bunny suit in public because it scares children

Put up your ears and step out of the suit. Idaho police have told a 34-year-old man to stop wearing a bunny suit in public because it has frightened the neighbors' kids. One woman called cops after she said she spotted William Falkingham dressed in the plush costume, peeking at her son from behind a tree and pointing his finger like a gun. When cops questioned other neighbors in Idaho Falls, they found several "who expressed that they were greatly disturbed by Falkingham and his bunny suit," a police report stated. Some neighbors said Falkingham sometimes wears a tutu with the suit. Falkingham told cops that "he enjoys wearing the suit," but he understood his neighbors' concerns. At least one neighbor, Deborah Colson, has hopped to Falkingham's defense. "He's got the bunny outfit, a cowboy suit and a ballerina dress but you don't see him except in his backyard," she said. "He's never done anything wrong but wear his little suits in the background," she said. "He's got a strange lifestyle at home but we all do weird things at home. It makes me so sad." - Daily News
