On Wednesday afternoon, Marla Behm was on her knees in the grass outside El Torito Restaurant and Cantina, coaxing four rabbits to eat some lettuce from her hand. "I love them," said Behm, of Fullerton, who frequents the restaurant so she can watch the rabbits while she eats. "I give them all my leftovers, my hors d'oeuvres too. They eat anything. Even tortilla chips." But for Behm and other customers who love El Torito's rabbits, it may soon be a case of hare today, gone tomorrow.

The Nature Park rabbits escaped eviction this week as the City Council narrowly voted to hire a temporary caretaker for the bunnies. The council voted 3-2 to pay veterinarian technician Jose Lopez $1,200 to look after the 80 or so rabbits during the next six months. In the first opposition to the rabbits since they became a regular council agenda item, Mayor Walter K. Bowman and Councilman Richard Partin voted against the proposal.

After hearing emotional pleas from fourth-graders to save God's creatures, the City Council on Tuesday decided that the Nature Park rabbits can live. But it was a close call. Mayor Richard Partin and Councilman Walter K. Bowman voted against the plan, saying that it was time that the great bunny experiment end. However, they weren't able to persuade the rest of the council members, who voted in the rabbits' favor.

This may be the Easter season, but it's hardly the best of times for bunny rabbits in south Orange County. The Mission Viejo City Council has given permission for one gated community to have rabbits shot on sight. Many residents in the Casta del Sol retirement community, frustrated for years by the abundance of rabbits gnawing on native shrubs and plants and doing their bunny business on their lawns, want to thin the ranks.

After being awarded a $10,000 grant from the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, the San Clemente Animal Shelter has made plans to create a rabbit habitat, just in time for the booming number of bunnies that are expected to crowd the shelter after the Easter season. Cuddly, furry and fluffy, bunnies are often a favorite gift for children during the holidays.

Bunny Utrecht II of Honolulu has it all: build, class, a firm bottom, close-standing ears, a winning look and a weight of only two pounds. But bunny lovers in Orange County who raise such breeds as the Netherlands Dwarf, which had all those qualifications to win the recent American Rabbit Breeders Assn. national competition in Florida, are now waiting for their chance.

Animal rights groups Tuesday expressed outrage over plans to shoot hundreds of wild rabbits at Leisure World, saying it would be a tragedy that residents in the gated retirement village easily could have avoided. The fate of the thriving population of burrowing cottontails, which have been enamored with the lush golf fairways and flower gardens enjoyed by many of the retirees, now is in the hands of police.

Three families in a densely wooded area were on the lookout for mountain lions this weekend after they woke up Saturday morning to find their pet rabbits mauled and large paw prints on their lawns. A representative of the Orange County Animal Shelter told the concerned families that the sets of tracks on their lawns belong to a mountain lion and her cub, the families said Sunday.

The driver of a flatbed truck carrying hundreds of rabbits was killed Monday when his vehicle veered off Interstate 5 and crashed into a parked tractor-trailer in Carlsbad. The 48-year-old driver, whose name was not released pending notification of his family, died instantly, San Diego County coroner's deputies said. About 40 of the roughly 800 rabbits were killed, and about 200 others were sprung from their cages by the impact.
