Unfortunately, your photos did not come through. I am unable to see the situation to give an assessment.

You can relocate the pups, or pull them away and discard if you do not want to keep them. It is important to make sure that it is not growing excessive pups because of an issue, though. Sometimes, pups will be produced because of an illness that triggers the survival instinct of reproduction.
