Thugs killed dozens of animals at a children’s mini zoo - after using them as footballs, horrified staff said today.Well, sadly, it’s not unknown.
Vandals, who broke in overnight, also used a dog to slaughter 30 dead rabbits and 20 chickens, workers at the attraction claimed.
Cockatiels, guinea pigs, lemurs and chinchillas were also released from their enclosures and several are still missing.
However, it doesn’t seem as if this kind of sick action is viewed quite as seriously as it warrants:
A police spokesman said: ‘It appears vandals gained entry to the premises and caused considerable damage to cages and enclosures, releasing many of the animals and birds.Eh..? According to the owners, they did a bit more than mere ‘vandalism’!
‘Security at the site is being stepped up and police are making enquiries.’
Still, there’s an answer for everything, if you look hard enough:
The spokesman added that some of the chickens could have been killed by a fox following their release from the enclosure.Look, chaps, if you do ALL the excusing and explaining away up front like this, what’s going to be left for the little darlings’ defence solicitors, youth workers and psychiatrists?
Assuming you ever catch anyone that is…
