COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. -- Animal advocates are trying to find out why someone apparently left dozens of rabbits along a road in Colorado Springs.

7News reports that between 50 and 70 white rabbits were found abandoned on a grassy area alongside Mark Dabling Blvd. Authorities are still trying to determine who dumped them off and why.

The individuals responsible for abandoning the rabbits could face animal cruelty charges, KRDO reports.

Someone spotted the white bunnies Sunday and members of the Dream Power Animal Rescue and other people helped round them up.

The Gazette ( http://bit.ly/sbt8Qr ) reports that the Humane Society of the Pikes Peak Region is investigating and offering a $500 reward for information in the case.

Many of the bunnies went to animal shelters, but about 20 were taken home by people who helped rescue them.
