The French lop-eared rabbit named Buggs frequently rested under a tree on the 5th hole fairway of the golf course. His owner, whose home is adjacent to the course, is offering a $50 reward for the rabbit’s return.
A rabbit named Buggs was a regular fixture on the 5th hole fairway at San Luis Obispo (Calif.) Country Club until the French lop-eared bunny went missing on June 13, the San Luis Obispo Tribune reported.
Jim Bonzi, whose home is adjacent to the golf course, owns the rabbit and said a neighbor spotted a man in a golf cart stop along the fairway, pick up something white and drive away. Bonzi notified neighbors when his rabbit did not come home that night, the Tribune reported.
Each morning, Buggs explores Bonzi’s garden before sitting under a tree on the 5th hole’s fairway. Golfers frequently stop and take pictures with Buggs.
“That bunny is part of my family,” said Bonzi. “He gets to roam free. That is part of my mistake. But, he is home every day and never goes away. My only fear was someone would pick him up, and someone finally did.”
Bonzi has owned Buggs for six months and is offering a $50 reward for the return of his friend, the Tribune reported.
“He will just follow you wherever you go,” Bonzi said. “When I work in the garden, he’s right there. If I dig a hole, he will stand in it. He is so curious. He is more like a dog than a rabbit. He’s a gas.”search
