(Washington Times) Magician Marty Hahne didn’t think things could get any more harebrained after the U.S Department of Agriculture harassed him for using an unlicensed rabbit in his magic shows two years ago.

Now, the agency is demanding he draw up a disaster plan for his furry friend.

The Ozark, Mo.-based magician contacted blogger Bob McCarty via email to explain his plight.

“You won’t believe what the USDA has come up with now,” Mr. Hahne wrote late Friday afternoon. “If this wasn’t so stupid, it would be funny!”
