On the evening of 31 March the Easter Bunny was arrested by authorities at China's Beijing Airport. Sources and eyewitnesses confirmed the arrest late last night. Mr. Bunny was found in possession of 2400 Century Eggs more commonly known as Preserved Egg, 100 Year Old Egg, 1000 Year Old Egg and Millennium Egg. The estimated street value of the eggs are RMB 300 000.00. The eggs are said to have been destined for rich, high profile, foreign clients whose identities could not yet been confirmed by the time of going to press. In a statement released to the media, Mrs. Bunny insisted on her husbands innocence saying: "Earnest is innocent!", "He has been framed by local authorities".
The local police acted on a anonymous tip after a warrant of arrest was issued by a Beijing City Council judge. Beijing police chief commented: "No criminal is beyond the reach of the long arm of the law, Mr. Bunny will be regret the day he chose a life of crime". A mob of angry, boisterous supporters protested outside the Beijing Police Station demanding his immediate release. Easter indeed looks bleak for Mr. Bunny. No eggs will be falling from the Great Wall this time round.
