SANTA ANA, Calif. — Authorities are looking for homes for 61 rabbits seized from a Santa Ana property in what police are calling a hoarding situation.

The Orange County Register reports (https://bit.ly/1A0cGIT) officers discovered the rabbits late Tuesday living four or five to a cage in unsanitary conditions. Nine of them were pregnant.

Animal Services took the rabbits and is offering them for adoption. A city ordinance allows a maximum of four rabbits per home.

Police Cpl. Anthony Bertagna says the woman told police she originally adopted just one and didn’t realize how quickly the animals would multiply. Bertagna says the woman soon became overwhelmed by caring for all of the rabbits.

She agreed to give them up and is not being cited.
