Frustrating case

Charges laid following seizure of 589 bunnies.

Over the last several months, the family surrendered 542 additional rabbits, which were generally healthier than those seized in March. The majority of those rabbits were put up for adoption.

Randolph said this one house on Haliburton has provided the society with the majority of the rabbits it has put up for adoptions over the last 18 months. In 2008, the society put 312 rabbits up for adoption; in 2009, it put up 432 rabbits.

The society averaged 55 rabbit adoptions a year prior to 2008.

Randolph could not discuss why one family had so many domesticated rabbits. She said during a followup visit, officers found grounds to seize the animals under the Animal Protection Act.

“If we had the rights to seize the animals earlier, we would have,” Randolph said. “This has been a very frustrating case for the Animal Humane Society.”
