Sept. 7 (UPI) -- Police at a British Columbia train station were able to reunite a wandering rabbit with his worried owner.

Metro Vancouver Transit Police said on social media that officers at the Granville SkyTrain station apprehended a "suspect" who "thought he could 'hop' onto a SkyTrain without paying."

Officers asked around the station and were able to find the owner of the animal, who turned out to be an emotional support bunny named Mercedes Sprinter.

"He received a verbal warning about having a valid fare," the post said.
