The world’s biggest rabbit has been stolen from his home. Proclaimed the world’s biggest rabbit by Guinness, Darius was stolen from his home in Worcestershire in the United Kingdom.

The 129 centimetres-long continental rabbit was stolen from his enclosure where he used to live in Stoulton overnight on Saturday, The Guardian reported.

The West Merica police believe that the rabbit was stolen from its home. In 2010, the rabbit was certified by Guinness for a world record, making it the biggest creature of its kind.

Annette Edwards, Darius’ owner and caretaker has offered a reward of $1,374 (£1,000) for the rabbit’s return. Edwards referred to the theft as a “very sad day”.
