A petrified burglar fled a family home in the middle of the night - after coming face-to-face with their giant pet rabbit, Toby. The 4.5kg (nearly 10 pound), two-feet long pet loudly stomped on the floor, reportedly scaring the nighttime intruder while the homeowners slept.
The burglar was able to steal some valuable items from the family before the rabbit could defend its territory
Toby still has some way to go before he is fully grown - British Giant rabbits can reach up to 5.9 kg. Owner Kimberley, 30, said monster bunny Toby was so big he lives in a cage built for a Labrador. Kimberley and online salesman partner Martin, 33, got their prized pet from an animal adoption centre who took him in an unwanted pet. She said: "He's playful, really friendly, and he doesn't mind my three-year-old crawling all over him. He's like a small dog really. "He has the run of the house and at night he goes in a dog's crate. It's a Labrador-sized cage. "When he thumps on the floor its incredibly loud - you can hear it echoing around the house."
