Vegan activist killed more than 90 newborn rabbits during rescue mission
A vegan activist who was shot at while rescuing animals from a Spanish farm has been accused of killing more than 90 rabbits during her mission.
Barcelona-based Mythical Mia claimed she had saved 16 rabbits from the land in Osona, Catalonia, before being allegedly shot at by angry farmers.
She shared a video of herself covered in blood, telling the camera bullets had broken a car window, causing her to be sprayed with glass.
However, her rescue mission has now been blasted by residents in the area who say more than 90 rabbits had to be euthanized as a result of her actions.
According to newspaper La Vanguardia, several of the rabbits taken by Mia had just given birth – meaning their offspring were left without the essential care of their mothers.
Five other pregnant rabbits allegedly died due to the intrusion, while others reportedly suffered broken spines or miscarried as a result of the stress.
The publication reports that before Mias arrival, the farm had 3,000 rabbits, with 700 of them believed to be around three days old.
Mia told her followers on Instagram that she had left the site peacefully before the farmers chased her and fellow campaigners down the motorway.
The activist said police then refused to escort them home and 10 minutes later one of the farmers cars pulled up alongside her and opened fire.
She continued: The window exploded in my face and there was a lot of blood from all the glass.
Despite everything, I am just happy that those 16 lives are free from harm. They make everything worth it.
Mia has denied causing the death of any rabbits at the farm, calling it false information and insisting that she only touched the rabbits that were rescued.
She continued: We were inside that farm for less than five minutes and we only touched the rabbits Read More – Source
