Magician Loses Rabbit Mid-Trick

 

Bunny’s Waiting for Dinner – Is That Wrong Too?

The Daily Mirror of London reported the odd story of animal-rights activists “liberating” a magician’s bunny during his show.

Lynn Thomas, known professionally as The Great Velcro, described it this way:

“I was in the middle of my act when I saw this shadow out the corner of my eye fumbling with my top hat. Then someone from the audience came up to me and said ‘Was that man supposed to run off with your rabbit?'”

The answer was obvious. Mr. Thomas was very distraught and considers his rabbit Georgina an integral part of all shows, not just the special Easter presentation.

Some of the audience of 150 at Komedia, a club in Brighton, chased the dreadlocked thief but could not catch him and rescue Georgina, a key part of Lynn’s act and only his fourth rabbit in 20 years as a magician. According to the club manager, “The audience chased the thief but he still got away.”

Mr. Lynn is of good repute in magic and not known for acts endangering animals in any manner. Paul Daniels had him as a guest on the famous magician’s television show, and even performed for the Queen Mum’s 80th birthday party.

Mr. Lynn said, “Everyone I’ve told this story laughs first but is then very sad. I imagine the thief thinks he knows what’s best about animal welfare. But he’ll probably end up helping her die young. If she’s put out in the wild she won’t last more than a couple of days.”

Police are looking for the rabbit and the thief. It was only one of four rabbits Mr. Lynn has had in 20 years.

Let’s hope they find Georgina before it is too late.
