Herd of more than 50 rabbits rescued from Indy’s Far Eastside neighborhood

INDIANAPOLIS — Indianapolis Animal Care Services got a bit more crowded Monday as they brought in more than 50 domesticated rabbits Friday.

IACS says Animal Control Officers responded to the area of 42nd and Post Friday on a call of domesticated rabbits running loose. When they arrived, they found more than 50 rabbits were dumped in the area.

“When they saw the report of how many there were, we reached out to the Indiana House Rabbit Society for some assistance in getting these rabbits picked up from this neighborhood,” said Roxie Randall, manager of community outreach for IACS.

Randall says as they were examining the rabbits, it became clear they were domesticated.

“They’re not the wild rabbits that you might see like walking a trail or something like that, said Randall. “These guys clearly were domesticated.”
