An woman who hoarded more than 1,100 rabbits in her southwest Edmonton home was fined $8,500 and banned for life from owning more than one pet Monday.

Shelley Zenner, 44, was also ordered to take psychological counselling after earlier pleading guilty in court to a charge under the Animal Protection Act of causing distress to an animal.

“It’s a horrific story, but also very sad,” said Crown attorney Christian Lim after the sentencing.

Court has heard animal protection officers raided Zenner’s two-storey home on March 12, 2011, and removed 589 rabbits – the largest single seizure of rabbits Edmonton Humane Society (EHS) officials have ever witnessed.

* Should point out the woman in the picture is a protection officer and not the accused. The rabbit is called Lionel.
