This Russian Lawyer Became a Real-Life Hobbit and Lives in a Hole in the Woods

This Russian had enough of society, so he moved underground, literally.

Yuri and his pet rabbit live happily in a hole in the woods. Learn the whole story of this real-life Russian Hobbit!

Yuri and his pet rabbit named Petrushka live happily in an underground home he created himself.

Yuri was once a lawyer 5 years ago but gave it all up. His underground home is snug and even has solar power for electricity. His underground abode is about 60 miles from Moscow.

If you ever get tired of modern society try what Yuri did in this video shared by Facebook page AJ+. He traded that city apartment for a life of hobbit style living. Better check local laws here in the States before trying it to avoid future problems.
