At least nine rabbits were scooped up by Pasadena animal services at the Rose Bowl on Wednesday night after a truckload of bunnies were set free on the grounds, NBC LA reports.

Two women who planned to jog around the stadium noticed someone dumping the rabbits in a wooded area at about 10 p.m. in the popular recreation area.

"We saw bunnies all over," said one of the joggers. "We saw somebody in a truck drop them off one by one and then they left. Not even in box -- just scattered around."

The officer and the joggers took to the bushes to rescue eight bunnies and their mother; raw footage shows them being captured with a net and put into cages.

The Pasadena Humane Society-SPCA said the family is doing well and will "likely be available at some point for adoption," according to NBC.
