FARGO, N.D. — A cute scene has become a nuisance for people in Fargo, N.D. Hundreds of jack rabbits have taken over a park and neighborhood. People say the animals have destroyed shrubs and are leaving their droppings everywhere. Fargo Police say they’re unable to do anything since the animals are wild.

It’s been about three months of them. Right away I thought they were really cute and now they’re becoming a big nuisance and everyday I wake up and I open up the windows to see how many rabbits there are in my yard and there’s at least 40 to 50 everyday,” said┬áKayla Straabe, a homeowner.

Some residents suggested poisoning the animals, but others are concerned because the rabbits are near a dog park.
