Handgun found inside toy bunny in Moorhead

MOORHEAD -- A person doing community service cleaning up trash around noon Tuesday in Moorhead found a gun stuffed inside a toy bunny, according to Moorhead police.

It was a .38-caliber handgun found in the general area of 34th Avenue and 18th Street.

The gun is being tested to see if it has been used in a crime, said Moorhead police Sgt. Mike Detloff.

"I think it's great that the person called in to let us know about it," Detloff said. "It's disturbing that it's in a child's toy."

Detloff did not know whether the gun was loaded
