Target: New York Police Commissioner, William J. Bratton

Goal: Praise the police department for saving over 174 rabbits from frigid temperatures.

Authorities seized a large number of rabbits that were spotted living in an unsheltered garden yard in Brooklyn, New York. They took the rabbits to keep them safe from New York’s frigid winter temperatures. Over 174 rabbits were taken to a shelter and were being examined by a veterinarian at Animal Care and Control of New York City (AC&C).

The police were responding to a 911 call from a witness who saw the rabbits running around in snow. They called the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA) and AC&C to the owner’s home to assist with the investigation and to decide if the environment was suitable for the animals. The authorities warned the owner of the animals, Dorota Trec, that the yard was not a safe environment for that number of animals. They instructed her to provide a more suitable shelter for her pets.

After their initial visit and warning to the owner, they received more complaints from witnesses.

The police returned to the yard and with the advice of animal welfare organizations, deemed that the animals were not living in a suitable environment.

They obtained warrant to seize 74 rabbits. On January 29, 2015, the authorities came back to the garden yard and seized over 100 more rabbits. Reports state that the rabbits suffered from a number of diseases, including syphilis.

Please sign this petition to thank the NYPD, ASPCA, and AC&C for saving these rabbits from their unsuitable living conditions.

happy rabbit
