Creep In Bunny Suit Terrorizing The Children Of Idaho Falls
"Police in Idaho Falls have told a man to stop wearing a bunny suit in public after people complained he has been frightening children.
Residents in the northwestern city of 54,000 people also reported William Falkingham, 34, occasionally wears a tutu with the bunny suit, police said in a statement on Tuesday.
Police warned Falkingham after a woman said she saw him dressed in the costume, peeking at her young son from behind a tree and pointing his finger like a gun."
Kids love bunnies, all a bunny at a pet store has to do is twitch its nose, and a child will plead with his mother to buy it.
However kids don`t find a man dressed in a bunny suit quite so loveable, especially if he`s also wearing a tutu and pointing his finger like a gun.
Falkingham is usually in his backyard when he`s dressed as a rabbit, and he has a right to dress like a bunny, Lord Fauntleroy or Little Bo Peep on his own property.
But the gentleman should refrain from pointing his finger like a gun at kids, unless they are making fun of him.
Falkingham wasn`t arrested, but the cops did warn him that he could be arrested as a public nuisance if he harasses the children in the neighborhood.
