Activist may have killed 90 bunnies in “rescue”

Featured Posts

A vegan activist who said she was attacked after rescuing 16 rabbits from a farm may have caused the deaths of nearly 100 bunnies, according to the Spanish newspaper La Vanguardia.

The Barcelona-based activist, who goes by the name "Mythical Mia" on social media, took the rabbits from a farm in the Osona region of Catalonia, in northwest Spain, on September 1.

She said on Instagram, where she has 40,000 followers, that a farmer attacked her and other activists when they tried to release dozens of rabbits from his property, and even shot at their car while they were driving away, though police disputed that claim.

Local reports from Spain said that several of the rabbits Mia had taken had just given birth, leaving dozens of bunnies without mothers to nurse from.

According to a report from La Vanguardia, 90 bunnies had to be euthanized following the incident. Several rabbits had broken spines, and many pregnant rabbits had to have abortions in the aftermath, the report said.

The farm had 3,000 rabbits before Mia, whose real name is unknown, and other activists attempted to free the animals.

It remains unclear why the activists wanted to free the rabbits, or what the rabbits were being farmed for.

Mia said in an Instagram story that she and other activists were on the farm for five minutes and are not responsible for the deaths of 100 rabbits.

She said the team had a professional veterinarian with them and blamed the farm's "horrific conditions" for the deaths.

Mia posted a video to her Instagram documenting the aftermath of the rabbit rescue.

"This is what has just happened to us, look, I'm documenting the whole thing," she said. "I'm covered in blood. This is what the farmers have done. They shot through our window and chased us down the motorway. Oh my God, I'm literally covered in blood."

She said she had to leave "thousands of mothers and babies behind."

Though Mia said the group took 16 rabbits, police said in a statement they took only 14.

A statement from Catalonia police, the Mossos d'Esquadra, seen by the MailOnline, said that the activists arrived at the farm at 7:30 p.m. on September 1.

"When Mossos d'Esquadra arrived at the site, the activists were outside. The 14 rabbits have not been found," the statement said. "There were some farmers at the scene and there was tension between the two groups. Mossos separated them and escorted them from the premises to avoid further conflict."

Police confirmed that a woman's window had been broken and a girl was injured.

"The window was most likely struck by a forceful object, due to the nature of the impact, rather than a shot from a shotgun," the statement said.

Kinda reminds me of this thing that just happened in finnish Big Brother.

One "animal lover" decided to save some fruit flies from getting killed from others , by capturing them and throwing them outside, only to find out they all died during the night when temperature dropped.

Some people just don't think things through and do things just to make them selves feel better.

See, this is the problem with this kind of empty activism. You can't just do good, that shxt is not enough, fam! Especially not in modern world. You also need well thought out plans, and LOADS OF MONEY to care for those animals that you safe otherwise you just make the animals suffer worse than when they were with farmers or whatever. You literally starve them to death. What a waste. At least with farmers, they can get still fed and farmers can get something in return out of it. :smh:

Also, domesticated animals reproducing invasively in environments that are not their own (feral cats, rabbits, horses, swine) while many ‘wild animals’ fail at doing so. That is why we do not release captive/domesticated animals without extensive rehabilitation. Which needs LOADS OF MONEY.  In many cases, feral domesticated animals have caused various wild animals to become extirpated. Which is causing its own issue, ON YOUR BEHALF, if you do this thing. Which is pretty much this woman is, based on her lack of knowledge and sights on things. :smh:

If PETA, that is pretty much a big organization and received lots of donations from rich folks can't do it, and had kill some of animals they rescue themselves, what makes you think you could do better?

I love vegan activists and think that they are some of the most compassionate people ever. Imagine dedicating most of your life to defending the rights of animals you can't even properly communicate with, understand or relate to. It is actually an honorable cause imo and they must have HUGE hearts BUT I do think they take it waaaaaayyyy too far sometimes. They also seem to mainly target poorer people cuz they get results quicker to brag about. Instead they should be trying to break into big corporations testing facilities and protest there. Why attack a farmer who has a family, bills to pay etc.. or for example a recent attack on a Chicken farmer in Morocco by a british animal rights enthusiast who literally jumped on his cage full on chickens and started insulting him. That guy is likely poor AF and needs to make a living to be able to pay bills and care for himself and his family. She used her privilege in that moment. My point is just..keep that same energy. If you dismantle the big corporations then the smaller stuff can follow. Don't harass farmers and not do anything about the biggest companies harming the largest amount of animals.

I don't understand why animal rights activists like this are so misguided.

How does stealing animals and putting them in new environments (e.g. releasing domesticated rabbits or birds into the wild) help ANYONE? 

In my area, we had a farmer who reported of a stolen dead COW by vegan activists who claimed they just "wanted a tour of the barn" (don't remember if the cow was dead because of a disease, about to be butchered or etc). Not only is a dead cow a biohazard if handled incorrectly (can't just grab 'em and stuff it in a trunk) but what did they intend to do with it? Show people that cows die at farms? :fail:

I am so, so annoyed at these kinds of activists. They're nothing but a pest to my local farmers and farmers around the world.

A mess... if you’re going to break laws & steal animals then you better have the money to provide food, shelter & care for these animals. You can’t just release them into the wild when they didn’t grow up in the wild. They’ll starve. I just can’t get behind “activists” like this... I’m all for saving animals from sh*tty a** farms where they torture them but not like this.

So much for that thread title.

Farming rabbits leads to rabbits dying. <- that's a much better title.

Doubt they’d have their spines broken in a commotion though. The fate of these rabbits was sealed. It’s unfortunate but it’s reality. This girl didn’t actually do anything to save them and judging from her quick posts to social media her objective was to gain attention, not free them. The title is fitting.
