I've been loosely following this thread, so i may have missed some details. However what is strikingly obvious to me is that rabbits that need to get urgent vet care and are NOT, is neglect and/or abandonment (may be criminal neglect in some jurisdictions).
AND rabbits that are running loose having to fend for themselves are NOT 'owned', but are considered strays.
If this was my neighborhood, i would lure those rabbits to my yard with a daily source of food/ water/ shelter, and capture them. Inconspicuously proceeding, and taking them to a rabbit rescue ( or shelter that proactively spays/ neuters/adopts).
Every day that those rabbits are loose being strays they are on borrowed time, awaiting a tragedy.
If you need help capturing them, talk to your local rabbit rescues for assistance. Often one of us will even loan traps or come out to help. If you can't find anyone local, I would even consult with you by phone and give you instructuons that would help you develop a plan that fits your situation.
If something happens to those rabbits and you could have done something-- it will haunt you forever.
You're not breaking any laws by capturing strays.
If you are concerned about former owner finding out, make sure the rabbits go to a rescue and not a public shelter. A rescue will watch your back. However its doubtful former owners would even care or notice the rabbits are gone anyway.
Ps. Where are you located? Need help finding a rescue group near you? PM me.
