Six Angora rabbits used to comfort cancer patients have been found stabbed to death in San Antonio.
Some of the slain rabbits were still in their cages. Other bodies were scattered around a yard.
San Antonio police did not immediately return a call Tuesday to provide further information.
Jose Gonzalez discovered the bodies Saturday. The 15-year-old's family owns the rabbits, which also had been shown in competition.
Lupita Rocha said her brother, Pedro Gonzalez, used the rabbits during his job as a counselor for patients. Rocha says some of the long, soft fur was used by the family to crochet scarves for people with cancer.
More than a dozen Angora rabbits at the home were unharmed.
