“According to Herrera, he checked on the wild bunnies about a half hour later and again found them covered with ants. Once again, the officer removed the ants and had to use the blade of a knife to remove the heads of a few ants that were embedded in the bunnies.”

The police department confirmed that the rabbits are doing well, and have been taken in by the Stick House Sanctuary, a wildlife rehabilitation facility in El Paso, Texas.
