Obsessed rabbit hoarder Miriam Sakewitz, who was busted in 2006 for keeping 250 live rabbits and 100 dead ones in her home outside Portland, Oregon, has been arrested again -- this time for keeping 13 rabbits in her hotel room.
A hotel employee reported her to the police after discovering the rabbits.
Sakewitz has a long, tortured history with rabbits and the law. After her Oct. 2006 arrest for bunny hoarding, police kept the rescued rabbits in a warehouse.

But in January 2007 Sakewitz broke into the warehouse and stole some of her former pets. When police caught up with her a few days later she had eight live rabbits and two dead ones in her car, and another 130 at a nearby horse farm. She pleaded guilty to charges of animal neglect and tampering with evidence.
Under the terms of her probation, Sakewitz was forbidden to keep any animals -- even insects -- for five years. She was also ordered not to go within 100 yards of a rabbit.
In the summer of 2007 she spend three days in jail for violating her probation. At one point when a probation officer visited Sakewitz, there were no rabbits found in the house but there was a half-empty 10-pound bag of carrots. Her attorney used the line "Carrots are human food, too," according to The Oregonian.
