Domestic rabbits take over busy Stratford plaza

Some unexpected furry creatures have taken up residence in a busy Stratford shopping plaza and a local rescue group says a case of animal dumping is to blame.

According to Brandee LaCava, of Hop Along Hollow Rescue in Norwalk, the domestic rabbits have begun to breed. She says the situation is getting worse as the population grows, with some of the bunnies getting hit by cars.

Animal rescue workers have been able to catch four rabbits so far, one of which was in poor health. They hope to trap all of the animals, take them to a vet and find them safe indoor homes.
