CHATTANOOGA (WDEF) – The Chattanooga Zoo is having it’s annual Hug a Bunny day today …

Zoo Director Darde Long says shortly after Easter every year, the zoo was being overwhelmed with calls asking if they wanted bunnies and chicks.

So they started the Hug a Bunny day so kids can pet bunnies and have their easter bunny pictures taken.

Charlie Fussell tells us she’s a big fan.

“An awesome time, I had an awesome time. I took a picture with the Easter bunny, I got a lot of eggs and it was awesome.”

Last year over 11,000 people attended, setting a new record for the zoo.

The event is happening again Saturday, from 9-5.
