Three people charged after 600 rabbits found in upscale house

Three Edmontonians are facing some hefty charges in the infamous "rabbit house" case.

Close to 600 rabbits were removed from a Haliburton Crescent house during the weekend of March 12th.

The animals ended up being humanely euthanized after the holding period, due to serious medical issues, and "Snuffles" - a deadly, untreatable rabbit disease.

Shelly, Edna and Quentin Zenner have been charged with causing distress, and three charges of failing in animal care duties. Each charge carries a maximum $20,000 dollar fine.

The trio may also never be allowed to care for an animal again.
