North Haven (AP) — Officials in a Connecticut town say they've settled a zoning dispute over a local girl's 20-pound pet bunny after receiving calls and emails from across the country supporting her.

North Haven First Selectman Michael Freda said Friday that the town will allow the 7-year-old girl and her family to keep the Flemish giant named Sandy and change the zoning rule that led to a cease-and-desist order three weeks ago. The rule bars anyone from keeping rabbits and other livestock on properties smaller than two acres.

The town's zoning enforcement officer issued the cease-and-desist order while investigating a blight complaint against the Lidsky family.

Josh Lidsky says his daughter, Kayden, is happy about the town's decision. He says she was scared and cried because she didn't want to lose her bunny.
