Last month, while driving home from work, Close decided to take a different route. She needed to think, and what she was thinking about was bunnies. Suddenly, Speedy appeared.
"I was lost in thought about my therapy bunny project when a white furry creature darted out into the road," Close told The Dodo. "I stopped just in time to avoid hitting what at first glance I thought was an opossum, but quickly realized was a little lop-eared bunny."
Fearing he'd eventually get struck by a car, Close decided to bring the bunny to safety. Speedy was scared at first and ran away, but she eventually caught him and he settled into her arms.
"I expected him to scratch and kick as I lifted him, but he didn't," Close said.
