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."
A Pasadena animal control officer responded to the site to catch the eight rabbits and their mother. Some of the rabbits scurried into bushes, but the officer -- with help from the joggers -- flushed them out and captured the bunnies in a net before placing them in cages.
The mother and her kits are doing well, according to the Pasadena Humane Society-SPCA. They will receive health checkups and likely be available at some point for adoption.
