City Euthanizes Dozens of Abandoned Rabbits

IN BRIEF The State / PALO ALTO

February 07, 2006|From Times Staff and Wire Reports

Sixty-five pet rabbits have been found abandoned around the city in recent months, and all but one have been euthanized, city officials said.

Animal control officials said the same person is probably responsible for the five incidents of abandonment during the last six months in which the animals were found.

Most of the rabbits were skittish around humans, and some were emaciated and had open wounds on their bodies, city officials said.

The most recent batch of 10 rabbits was found Jan. 28 in a city-owned garden near Embarcadero Road, where most of the other rabbits were found.
