We waited till today to tell you this story until today so you wouldn't think it was an April  Fool's joke, lol. But Thumper, the drug-sniffing rabbit, is real, and he's helping police in South Jersey.

Thumper is the first of his kind in the crime-fighting world and he's been brought on staff by the Waterford Twp. Police Department in Camden County. Watch him in action below!

Isn't he super cute and cuddly? But don't mess with him, he's a VERY serious bunny.
