E.A.R.S. – Erie Area Rabbit Society & Rescue is a nonprofit volunteer-based organization dedicated to educate about proper house rabbit care and to rescuing abandoned bunnies in the Erie area.
E.A.R.S. is located at 2316 W. 38th St. in Erie, Pa. Members care for, vet, spay/neuter and find good homes to adopt the bunnies.
The volunteers are looking for information on a person(s) who dumped 23 domestic bunnies in two different North East Parks last week.
Calls came in on Tuesday, June 29, about 13 dumped at the entrance to the North East Water Treatment Plant on North Mill. E.A.R.S. worked all week and managed to catch all of them.
Then on Saturday, July 3, they received two more calls reporting rabbits that were dumped in Fisherman’s Beach, east of the North East Marina. A total of 10 rabbits were caught at that location.
All bunnies are the same breed (Magpie Harlequin) and most likely belonged to a breeder as all the females are pregnant.
If anyone has info as to who would have done this call E.A.R.S. at 814-838-9732 or leave a message on the Facebook page.
