During the botched rescue, many of the rabbits recently gave birth but the offspring were left behind. Five pregnant rabbits died during the incident and several others had broken spines or miscarried due to shock. Before the incident, 3,000 rabbits lived on the farm and 700 of them were babies.
Mia said in a video to her Instagram followers that she left the scene peacefully and only rescued 16 rabbits before being chased by the farmers.
‘Despite everything, I am just happy that those 16 lives are free from harm.‘
‘We were inside that farm for less than five minutes and we only touched the rabbits who we rescued, who are all doing fine now, despite being very sick when rescued due to the filthy living conditions of that farm.’
‘We did not leave any babies without their mothers as we only rescued young ones. We had a professional vet on site with us the whole time.’
