Dozens of domesticated rabbits were rescued over the weekend after they were abandoned on the city’s northeast side, according to the Indianapolis Animal Care Services.  

Roxie Randall, Manager of Community Outreach for Indianapolis Animal Care Services, said about 50 rabbits that most likely would not have been able to survive in the wild were rescued.  

“The rabbits would have been major targets for predators,” Randall said. “Many of them have coats that do not blend into natural foliage, or they would have struggled to fit into hiding places from predators.”  

Indianapolis Animal Care Services received a call Friday about the rabbits and worked with volunteers from the Indiana House Rabbit Society to capture them, Randall said.  

One of the rabbits was found dead and a few others had injuries, including an eye infection and bite wounds, Randall said.
