BEDFORD, N.H. (AP) — A group of rabbits that were rescued in Las Vegas are recovering at a New Hampshire animal shelter.
WMUR-TV reports seven rabbits were rescued from an area called the Las Vegas Dumpsite and transported to the Animal Rescue League of New Hampshire in Bedford. Shelter officials say the number of abandoned domestic rabbits living on the streets of Las Vegas has grown to over 800 since 2007.
Animal Rescue League Director of Outreach and Investigations Maureen Pendergast says the animals are resilient. Pendergast says rescue groups also helped host the rabbits throughout the transportation process.
The rabbits will be ready for adoption in a few weeks.
