Top 3 misbehaving animals of the week


You would think just a week after Valentine's Day, animals would still be feeling the love, but sadly that's not the case. Here are Newsy's top three misbehaving animals of the week.

In our No. 3 spot, a stampede of bunnies decided to chase down a woman who had offered them some food. (Via WTXF)

"The person who posted it said they were on an island off of Japan, nicknamed Rabbit Island." (Via HLN)

During World War II, the Japanese Imperial Army manufactured more than 6,000 tons of poison gas on the island. Daily Mail says at some point, the rabbits were brought to the island to be used as test subjects for the poison. Nowadays, the island is full of the creatures.

Three hundred bunnies, to be exact, who are all clearly ready to run a person down for a bite of food.

Coming in at No. 2 is a 9-foot-long alligator that's hiding out in a sewer drain by a Florida country club. (ViaABC)

Apparently there's a large retention pond nearby, so seeing an alligator moving through the pipes isn't unusual. But that doesn't stop residents from being concerned.

"Animals always have the animal instinct. What if you had your grandchildren here or you're walking the dog? You know, it was more than a little surprise." (Via WWSB)

Crews say the alligator is slowly making its way out of the storm drain. Meanwhile, they are still trying to determine a plan of action to manually get it out.

And our No. 1 misbehaving animal is a turkey who's decided to make its home at a Pennsylvania gas station. (Via Fox News)

"Workers say the bird likes to hang out on top of the fuel pumps and chase customers out of the store." (Viwa WVUE)

The turkey has been hanging around for weeks and has quickly learned that if she causes trouble, she'll get a treat.

"Now, when the bird makes its way inside, they have to chase it back out. But when it doesn't work, they give the bird a favorite treat to calm her down. Apparently, she's quite fond of Ho-Hos." (Via WPSG)

Hey, we'd stick around for Ho-Hos, too. Thanks for watching our top three misbehaving animal picks; stop by next week for more.
