Reward offered for dozens of rabbits left by roadside

Animal patrol officers are searching for the person or people they say abandoned 40 to 70 rabbits on the side of a Colorado Springs road  Sunday.

The animals were rescued by Dream Power Animal Rescue as well as others who saw the white rabbits near Mr. Biggs, 5755 Mark Dabling Blvd.

Erica Meyer, a spokeswoman for the Humane Society of the Pikes Peak Region said the organization is offering a $500 reward for information on the case.

“We are investigating the case and trying to find the people responsible,” she said.
The rabbits were spotted Sunday and an anonymous caller told an animal patrol officer about them. According to the humane society, the caller was not clear about the number of rabbits, so the officer decided to wait until the next day to respond.

Instead, Dream Power led the rabbit rescue and the humane society is working with the organization to ensure the animals are cared for and receive any needed medical attention, Meyer said.

Also, about 20 rabbits were rescued at the scene by individuals. If those people cannot care for the rabbits, they are encouraged to take them to the humane society, 610 Abbot Lane.
