A rescue group trying to save hundreds of rabbits from a backyard in Reno say they've run out of room and need to build more fences.
Rebecca Preston of Utah-based Best Friends Animal Society say
they've moved about 800 rabbits from the one-acre homesite in
southeast Reno to a leased ranch in Lemmon Valley. There, the
rabbits are being spayed and neutered.
Preston says several hundred rabbits remain, and the society
needs to build more cages.
Society officials estimate the rescue effort could cost up to 1
(m) million dollars. They're hoping the animals will be adopted.
Jackie Decker says she's been caring for rabbits for nearly 30
years at her home. She contacted the animal society when she became
ill and couldn't handle the multiplying population.
