An Easter bunny that appeared to have fallen asleep during a photo session Wednesday in New Jersey with the public is owned by the same company that supplies the rabbit in the Cross County Shopping Center in Yonkers.

A concerned, local mom urged caution after the rabbit in Wayne's Willowbrook Mall fell asleep as she waited in line with her children.

"Not such a good experience today," she wrote on Facebook.

"When [we] arrived bunny was gone and on break. They asked me to come back in 45 minutes. When we returned we found [the] bunny like this (see photo above)."

Daily Voice left a voicemail with mall management and sent an email to Iconic Group, who provides the bunny, Wednesday evening.

The mom said she had to tap the bunny several times to wake it up before her children went to take their photo.

"Once she was up she barely moved," the mom said. "Something seemed strange.

"I voiced my concern to every employee and they told me to call costumer service (which I did bc I felt uncomfortable leaving and doing nothing while baby after Baby is being placed on this lap)."

The mom said other people in line were noticing that the bunny was asleep and appeared to have been asleep before she arrived.

She urged others to use caution.

"Sad because we had many good experiences," she said, "but today was downright scary."
