of rabbits for springtime holidays. Owner Barney Benson built an
operation that prides itself in the quality cottontails it provides both

innovative techniques he uses that have revolutionized rabbit breeding.
Daily, admiring visitors to the
boutique take guided tours, then select the perfect bouncing pets from his
state-of-the-art rabbit hutch, complete with environmental controls and
automated bunny feeder.

new sign hanging atop the hutch suddenly dislodged and fell on him,
striking Barney in the head and leaving the boutique leaderless.
