A Japanese man who lost his pet rabbit discovered it had fallen on its back in the waste paper bin and, unable to move, had simply laid there waiting patiently to be rescued.
And the man known only as Twitter user @MontkSs caused a storm on the internet when he posted the images of the helpless bunny lying upside down after getting trapped in the bin.
The man wrote: "I realised that I hadn’t seen the rabbit that we keep in our home at all today, and spent five minutes looking for it. Well, first of all, I found it, but just how in the hell did you get in there?"
He said that the rabbit did not seem to be any worse for wear despite having been in the bin for some time and after putting it back on its feet it had slowly hopped back to its cage was able to have a more dignified nap.
After posting the pictures online they were retweeted thousands of times from people commenting on how cute the rabbit looked, and variations of people either offering to adopt it or asking where a similar bunny could be purchased.
The trapped bunny is a dwarf rabbit, which is often sold by pet shops as a suitable pet to keep inside a house or flat.
