Officials in Long Island, New York are offering a reward for information leading to the person or people responsible for dumping 27 rabbits by a Suffolk County train station, per the AP. The Suffolk County Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals says it was notified on Sunday that a number of domestic rabbits were in the vicinity of the Ronkonkoma train station. The SPCA and other animal welfare groups captured the bunnies, which don't have the skills to live in the wild on their own. There is a $3,500 reward being offered, according to a statement posted to Facebook on Sunday. "We can use the public's help. The Suffolk County SPCA is highly motivated to find those who are responsible for this heinous act," the statement read. (More rabbits stories.)
