For at least 30 years, the story of a man dressed as a bunny has haunted the residential neighborhoods around our nation's capital. In the final installment of our Spooky Season Urban Legends series, we’re getting into the deep end with The Bunny Man. Tall as this tale may sound at first, the Bunny Man has been a fixture of local legend for decades. By 1973 the so-called “Bunny Man” was reported in Maryland and the District of Columbia. His infrequent and widespread appearances tended to occur in secluded locations and usually tell of a figure clad in a white bunny suit armed with an ax threatening children or vandalizing property. By the 1980s the Bunny Man had become an even more sinister figure with several gruesome murders to his credit. What is the origin and nature of this incredible tale? We’re doing our best to get to the bottom of it.
