PORTLAND, Ore. – Washington County’s “Bunny Lady” is back in the hutch after violating a court order banning her from owning animals for five years. Miriam Sakewitz, 47, was arrested Tuesday at a hotel in the Portland suburb of after an employee reported finding rabbits hopping around in her room.
Problems for Sakewitz started in October 2006 when police in , about 15 miles west of Portland, found and confiscated nearly 250 rabbits in her home, including about 100 dead ones in freezers and refrigerators.
Sakewitz was sentenced in April 2007 to five years probation and was banned from owning or controlling animals. She also was told not to go within 100 yards of a rabbit.
That summer, Sakewitz was ordered to spend three days in jail for violating her probation by keeping a rabbit in her house. County probation officer Susan Ranger also said Sakewitz had canceled counseling sessions and refused to open the door for unannounced visits. Ranger said she found no rabbits when she finally got inside but did find a half-empty 10-pound bag of carrots.
There’s an old saying that goes “Where there’s smoke, there’s fire.”
There’s also another saying which goes “Where there’s half-empty 10-pound bags of carrots, there’s probably 100 dead rabbits in this crazy bitch’s freezer.”
For Sure NOT Bunny Lady
