The Yuba City Police Department has welcomed a new officer, and we can confidently say he’s the cutest one on the force. He’s brown and white with long ears and a fluffy cotton tail. He likes to hop, eat carrots and make the other officers smile.
Percy the rabbit was found wandering Percy Avenue by Officer Ashley Carson last October. Carson found him to be incredibly friendly, but animal services was unable to locate an owner.
A Yuba police services analyst decided to adopt the bunny and began bringing him into the station, where he quickly brought joy to all.
Just before Easter, Yuba PD decided to make it official by promoting Percy to the rank of “wellness officer.”
“Officer Percy lounges at the police department during the day and is a support animal for all,” the department wrote in a Facebook post Wednesday.
Now, that’s one hoppy tale.
