Thieves move out with 81 rabbits
TWO RABBIT FARMERS are asking the general population and supermarkets who trade in rabbit meat to exercise caution when purchasing the product and to investigate its origin.
Farmers Darcy Dear and Winston Harding are making this appeal after they reported that 81 rabbits were stolen from their property Dear’s Farm at Oldbury, St Philip, sometime between Sunday and Monday leaving them with a $3 000 loss.
Harding said 60 of the rabbits were due to be slaughtered and delivered to a local supermarket on Tuesday this week.
Additionally, 20 of the rabbits were mothers, 12 of which were with young and expected to give birth between this week and early next month. (LK)
