These days, it’s important to always be aware of your surroundings. While you hope that everyone at the airport is there for travel, it still makes sense to feel a little panicked after seeing unidentified, unclaimed luggage. Who knows what might be inside? Luckily for Adelaide Airport in South Australia, a piece of such luggage didn’t contain a bomb — instead, it contained a bunny.


The luggage was found on Wednesday, June 27th, in a women’s restroom. Upon discovery, the bomb response team found a small male dwarf rabbit, who is currently going by the name “Boeing” until they find his actual identity. After enjoying some time at the airport, Boeing was taken by the Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Australia (RSPCA), which will be giving him all the TLC he needs.

It’s a good thing that Boeing was found in time, as it’s not humane to keep a baby bunny stored in luggage. There are a few theories as to why this happened in the first place — for one, perhaps someone was trying to smuggle the bunny on a plane and figured it wouldn’t work out at the last minute.

It’s also possible that the bunny belonged to a traveling child whose parents might not have initially realized they had a stowaway. He could have been left behind in a panic.

An airport is a strange place to randomly dump a bunny, but hopefull, the owner had the best intentions in doing so. That might have been why he was found in the women’s restroom, which gets a lot of foot traffic. It’s like his owner knew he wouldn’t be alone for long.

While it’s kind of cute to have a bunny at the airport, it’s sad that he was given up. Hopefully Boeing finds himself a new home with a loving family, one that knows that bunnies aren’t necessarily fans of air travel.
