The Davis County Sheriff expects charges soon for a man who allegedly hoarded animals.

The sheriff says deputies are still questioning people about the animals’ care.

Authorities found 322 animals at Roger Blew’s home in Drakesville comprising of 30 different types. Sixty of them were dead.

The animals are being cared for and adopted out by the Animal Rescue League in Des Moines.

One animal has made its way into a Des Moines school. Windsor Elementary 4th graders are fostering a rabbit until it’s adopted.

The students have had foster rabbits before but this is different. Their teacher says they have to be patient because she just had six babies on Friday.

The students named the momma bunny “Hope” because she now has a fresh start in life.

“We talked a lot about this and the reason we ended up with her isn’t just a regular foster situation, that we need to be extra cautious, be extra quiet,” teacher Sarah Johnson said.

Johnson says the bunnies will be in the classroom for about three weeks.
