Earlier this week, we covered a story of a vegan activist breaking into a bunny farm to save the rabbits. She claimed she and the group with her were chased and shot at by the farmers. She says she managed to save 16 rabbits, but the farmers claims that the “activist” ended up killing almost 100 bunnies in her escape.
The incident took place in Osono, Spain, last Sunday. The activist, known only as “Mythical Mia” on social media, filmed herself with blood on her cheek. Mai went on a rant where she proclaimed she and the group she was with were able to “rescue” 16 rabbits from the farm.
A local publication claimed the activist did more harm than good as it was reported by a veterinarian that the vigilante group killed five rabbits who were about to give birth. There were a number of others who had their backs broken. Those who were lucky enough to survive the ordeal had to have forced abortions in order to stay alive.
The Barcelona-based activist was said to have killed upwards of 90 bunnies, the New York Post reported. As she “documented” the ordeal with a video posted to her social media account, she proclaimed that she did the right thing.
“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.
Mia then went on a holier than though rant about how these rabbits were being mistreated. “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,” she explained.
“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.”
Towards the end of the video, Mia states that she and her group will continue to trespass onto farmers property and steal their animals to free them.
“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.”
