PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) – More than a dozen rabbits that were reported stolen the night before a rabbit-cooking class have turned up at an adoption agency in Portland, Ore.

The rabbits were returned to farmer Levi Cole after 17 of them disappeared on Jan. 7. Cole reported the theft on the night before he taught a class on raising, slaughtering and cooking rabbits.

Cole says he believes political motivation was behind the theft, although police have no suspects.

The rabbits were found at adoption agency Rabbit Advocates, and one had been adopted by the time police arrived. Rabbit Advocates did not return a call Friday.

Portland Meat Collective owner Camas Davis says it’s is the first time this has happened to the group.

Police say Cole initially overestimated the number of rabbits taken.
