NEW JERSEY (FOX5NY) - Things got heated between the Easter bunny and another man at Newport Center Mall in Jersey City on Sunday. Video posted to Twitter shows the man dressed as the bunny and another man throw punches at each other.
It is not clear what lead to the altercation but there are reports that a woman attacked the bunny first. It happened in front of children waiting in line at the holiday display.
NJ.com reported Monday that the fight began after a child slipped off the bunny's lap. The child's mother allegedly became angry and attacked the man dressed as a bunny.
The bunny pulled off his head before the attack. He later pulled off his furry hands, presumably to be able to connect better on his punches.
The Easter bunny is a fixture at the mall during the holiday season, taking pictures with children and their families.
Mall security were eventually able to subdue the bunny. It's unclear if any arrests were made.
