What do I do about a bunch of rabbits that aren't afraid of people?

My neighbors got angry that their kids were refusing to get off their asses and feed their show rabbits, so they opened the cages and all 12 rabbits are free. I know they should be yelled at since you can't just set domestic rabbits loose, but the damage has been done. Since the neighbors have a dog that's loose on the property, all the rabbits have made their way over to my house where the dogs are behind a fence. It was sort of amusing at first, but this was a month ago and the rabbits won't be chased off. They'll let you get close but they won't let you catch them. It's getting to be spring, and I can just imagine the bunny nightmare about to happen, especially since we usually start planting the garden in March.

I don't want to hurt them or anything, and I can't really afford any of those humane traps. Even if I could, what would I do with the rabbits then? I think animal control would laugh me off the phone if I called and said I had rabbits in my yard. I've complained to the neighbors a bit, since they started the problem, but they don't really seem to care.

EDIT: I'll probably call AC tomorrow then. And definitely tell them about the neighbors.
