The Indiana restaurant’s lacking mascot returned after a “drunken mistake”.
It was a bad bunny day.
The surveillance video showed an unknown customer in the lounge in Fishers from 1933, who picked up the taxidermy rabbit named “Theodore A. Hare” on Friday evening. The animal, dressed in a fancy hat and with an old shotgun, serves as the restaurant’s mascot.
Someone returned a stuffed bunny on Tuesday that was stolen from an Indiana restaurant last week.

The restaurant reported the stolen rabbit on social media and offered a $ 500 gift card for his return. Bryn Jones, vice president of marketing and retail for restaurant owner Huse Culinary, told the Indianapolis star that it would have cost about $ 1,000 to replace the bunny.
“No questions asked and no hard feelings,” tweeted the restaurant. “Our only hope is that he will return unharmed.”

The rabbit reappeared in the restaurant on Tuesday evening when someone dumped him in a trash bag with an apologetic message.
“We’re sorry! That was a drunken mistake,” read the note. “He was in good hands!”

Oddly enough, this isn’t the first time someone has snapped up a taxidermy animal mascot from a Huse Culinary restaurant. Someone reportedly stole a fox named Winston from St. Elmo Steak House in Indianapolis in 2018.
Winston was brought back to the restaurant a few days later via an Uber.
“After how much attention this got we thought it would never happen again,” Jones told the star. “But here we are.”
