Easter bunny has his own museum

It all started with Adam and Eve: two small, long-eared ornaments that laid the foundation for what has become Switzerland's only rabbit museum.

The collection, in Bubikon near Zurich, belongs to Gertrud Pürro, once a breeder of real rabbits. Adam and Eve were a gift from her husband back in 1977.

"I thought they looked lonely, so I would get them some friends," she explained, and it wasn't long before she was hooked. Rabbits are famously prolific; she now has five and a half thousand.
