VIDEO: More than 40 rabbits rescued after attempts to sell online

SAN FRANCISCO (KRON)—More than 40 rabbits were rescued in San Francisco after their owner tried selling them online for “meat or pets,” according to San Francisco Animal Care and Control.

The owner is accused of making Craigslist.com post to try and sell the rabbits, Animal Care and Control officials said.

Selling rabbits is illegal in San Francisco.

The rabbits are being checked by Animal Care and Control officials. They’re also working with a rescue group called SaveABunny to help the rabbits find homes.

The animals are expected to be up for adoption in about one month. Anyone who is interested in adopting one of the rabbits is asked to visit the organizations website at www.saveabunny.org.

Animal Care and Control officials are reminding people to report any kind of animal abuse or neglect to the organization’s emergency line at (415) 554-9400.
