Following the post, many Twitter users used the opportunity to come up with their best rabbit-based puns.

One person stated that Thumper was, ‘enough to give the criminals grey hares’ whilst another user said: “Glad to see Thumper hasn’t been issued with shoes or boots. Would hate him to get bunny-ons.”
