This isn’t the first year that the Easter Bunny competition hasn’t featured … well, a bunny. CNN reports that last year, Lieutenant Dan, an adorable, two-legged coonhound dressed up in bunny ears, stole the hearts of judges, and took home the title of 2020 Easter Bunny. Lieutenant Dan returned as guest judge this year, and we bet he wasn’t about to froget the opportunities he enjoyed as Easter Bunny, thanks to a few open-minded judges.
Betty will be bringing home $5,000 for her human, Kaitlyn V., who is certain that her amphibian won’t disappoint. “She has been a wonderful companion at college and thanks to the support of my friends, family, and the amphibian community, I know she’ll make Cadbury proud as she inherits the bunny ears,” she says in a release. Besides, if you really want this year’s bunny to be a dog, we bet Betty can just dress up as a Croaker Spaniel with rabbit ears and pull it off marvelously.
Cadbury’s American distributor, Hershey, says it will also be donating $15,000 to the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals to mark Betty’s un-frog-ettable rise to Easter Bunny stardom.
