Canmore rabbits get new home
CANMORE — An animal rescue group says it has found sanctuary for some feral rabbits being killed in an Alberta mountain town.
Canmore recently started trapping and killing the creatures to curb their out-of-control population.
Susan Vickery with the Earth Animal Rescue Society says a couple with a farm north of Calgary is willing to take in as many as 50 rabbits.
And she’s hoping other people will soon come forward with offers of more space.
The group helped avoid a controversial, mass extermination of the animals last year when it found refuge for 213.
The town says it plans to continue with the pest control program but is willing to work with anyone who wants to take in some rabbits.
