SACRAMENTO, CA - A mother in North Natomas said the family's pet bunnies were attacked and killed by a pair of pit bulls.
The dogs were off leash and reportedly running around the Bluefeather Court neighborhood on Wednesday.
Michelle Meier said her kids' two bunnies Mopsy and Cottontail were in a cage in the front of her house, when the dogs broke the cage open and attacked the bunnies.
Meier said her 8-year-old son Maxwell Meier saw his pets being attacked when he looked out the kitchen window.
The nanny called Meier, who rushed home, but was forced to stay in her car because the dogs tried to attack her.
"We were stuck in our car until animal control could come because every time I got out, they tried to bite me," Meier said.
Animal Control officers got to the scene and were able to catch both dogs.
Meier has six children, but said Maxwell is taking the deaths the hardest.
