PARKVILLE, MD—Community members are upset after a stuffed Easter Bunny, chair, and sign were seemingly stolen in the Parkville area.

Local resident Shannon McMillan posted on social media saying that she had placed a stuffed Easter Bunny in a chair at the intersection of Taylor Avenue and Perring Parkway on Sunday.

The stuffed bunny was holding a sign thanking essential workers for risking their safety during the COVID-19 pandemic.

When McMillan’s husband went to retrieve the items later in the day on Sunday, they were gone.

“So I placed my children’s life sized Easter bunny, my kitchen chair and handmade sign I painted. It was placed at the intersection of Taylor and Perring Parkway and I am positive it was still there at 7:15. My husband went to get it and 5 mins later it was gone,” Shannon McMillan wrote.  “The sign was thanking essential workers for everything. Also I put a sign on it saying please don’t remove, I belong to 4 small children. My kids are really upset over this. Someone please return.”

McMillan confirms that she called police to see if they might have taken the display inside due to Monday’s stormy forecast and they did not.
