The world's longest rabbit has been stolen from his home in England. Darius measures 129cm from nose to tail. Police say he was abducted late Saturday evening. They said: "It is believed the rabbit was stolen from its enclosure in the garden of the property of its owners....We are appealing for information following the theft." Darius' owner has offered a $2,750 reward. She begged for his safe return and said Darius was too old to be bred.

There has been a rise in pet thefts in the UK during the coronavirus pandemic. Darius' owner said: "Every animal is an individual that can't be replaced....[Darius] is such a loveable character." The police said this was a high-profile case as Darius was a celebrity in England. They believe the thieves have a special motive because of the commercial value of the rabbit. The UK's policing minister called animal theft a "vile crime". He promised to crack down on it.
