Long Beach Campus Bunnies

Long Beach City College in California has hosted a feral rabbit population for over 30 years and in the last year the college has made strides to control the population through a neutering and spaying program. They now have about 50-60 rabbits on the campus. Plus, they are working with the Best Friends Animal Society to get rabbits adopted. Periodic checks are done to make sure the remaining rabbits are fixed. They are also working to curb abandonment through education and a $500 fine or jail time for abandoning a pet on the campus. Students can volunteer to help at the Rabbit Adoption Center on campus. See full article here.
