(Au) Farmed Bunnies Released on Scorching Day

Hundreds of factory farmed rabbits have died in the heat or been killed by foxes after a group of people let them loose.

Investigators believe several people broke into an unlocked shed at a Ballan Rd property sometime between 6pm on January 10 and 6am on January 11.

The shed holds about 1200 captive rabbits in cages and several hundred of the animals were let loose, they said.

Owner Charlie Iliopoulos said he believed animal rights activists were to blame for the latest incident. His 66ha property has been broken into numerous times over the last four months.
