He once again tries to catch Peter and his sisters, Flopsy, Mopsy and Cottontail, and also his cousin, Benjamin by setting bear traps in his garden. His plan was foiled when one of the bear traps got caught in his beard.
While Peter Rabbit trespassed into Mr. McGregor’s garden again, he managed to capture him and prepared to put him into a pie. However, before he could do so, he suddenly died of a heart attack, and fell to the ground, much to Peter’s surprise. It was revealed that the real cause of Mr. McGregor’s death was decades of terrible lifestyle choices of eating too much junk food, which caused his heart attack. After he died, Thomas McGregor moved to his house and garden.
