An activist who goes by “Mythical Mia,” claims she was attacked by an angry mob during an alleged rescue mission on a farm near Osono in Spain earlier this month.
Five rabbits which where pregnant and about to give birth, were killed during the “rescue” mission while several others were left with broken spines.
The amount of rabbits taken by Mia were said to have been pregnant or lactating, which meant that their offspring, around 90 bunnies, had to be euthanized after being abandoned, the paper states.
The mother of the rabbits did survive but those who were left behind were allegedly forced to have abortions.
Mia wrote on her Instagram the following:
“This is what has just happened to us, look, I’m documenting the whole thing. 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.”
Mia described in the video the events of that day, saying that after the group had taken the rabbits from the property, the farmer “strangled activists and smashed their heads in with metal poles.”
After the police arrived and informed the group to leave. Mia said the farmers chased them down the motorway at 124 mph before following them down a side road.
Posting updates of the “rescued” rabbits on social media, she posted:
“These 16 are the lucky ones. After actions like this we get to go home but for them there is no way out. We only managed to find a home for 16 beforehand, so had to leave thousands of mothers and babies behind. They will be trapped inside those cages for their entire lives, their only escape is when they are shipped off to a slaughterhouse to be murdered for their flesh and fur. Rabbits like these are also abused for animal testing, tortured for a lifetime before eventually getting murdered too.”
“They are also regularly kept as ‘pets’ often in solitary confinement and inappropriate conditions suffering from boredom and multiple other health issues. What we do to the animals need to end immediately. This injustice has gone on far too long. We will continue to enter in these facilities to expose these horrors and liberate the beings trapped inside for as long as it takes. We are not going anywhere. Join us in our fight, be vegan, be active and let’s put an end to this once and for all.”
