One girl's pet bunny in Huaura, Peru, apparently had a hard time playing it cool when he stumbled onto a secret marijuana stash in a neighboring home; he seemed suspiciously frisky every time he returned from his recurring escape. So she took it upon herself to follow her little Pinpon, only to discover that the abandoned house on the other side of her own was housing plants that her pet felt compelled to munch on, Yahoo News reports she told Panamaricana.

The innocent girl told the family about the plants she had discovered; they investigated with more mature eyes and called the police. After the authorities came and removed the potted plants, Pinpon is rumored to have run away (in one last ditch effort to find the weed?) but has now retired back to his previously sober life at home, reports the Dodo. But now he's become a local celebrity of sorts, and has even inspired his own meme on Facebook. Police took the plants; there's no word on whether the grower was found. (Pinpon may have been nibbling his weed for free, but in the US it costs the average legal user hundreds a year.)
