Bunny costume out in SoCal police sting

GLENDALE, Calif. (AP) – Glendale police who used a bunny costume to decoy bad drivers at crosswalks have abandoned the outfit after it made a city councilman hopping mad.

An officer wore the Easter outfit on Wednesday in crosswalks. Drivers who didn’t yield to the furry pedestrian were ticketed.

But City Councilman John Drayman harshly criticized the head-turning costume, calling it “breathtakingly dangerous” and a poor use of city resources.



Glendale police continued the crosswalk sting on Thursday but the officer wore shorts and a T-shirt. A city spokesman says the city is reevaluating the use of costumes for enforcement campaigns.
