Investigators said the 35-year-old was carrying a Brazilian passport with a fake name, plus luggage containing the two bunnies, according to the Post.

One of the bunnies was big and brown, while the other was small and white, the Daily News reported.

The rabbits were gutted, and agents found drug paraphernalia and 1,844 grams, or nearly two pounds, of methamphetamine, the Post said.
