What I do know is that it's had some fall out to other rabbit breeders who were using these folks for transport and now have lost their transport fees.
I know it's a fear of most rabbit and small animal breeders...that someone will steal or take their critters.
I know it's a difficult position for the people responsible. Away from home, trusting others to care for their critters and then coming home to your animals being taken.
I know things happen, but it's still a rough, tough place to be in.
I don't know if the charges are true.
All I know is what is reported by the news and you have to wonder what the slant may or may not be.
I know the fear of it keeps people having their rabbitries closed and being afraid to talk about what they do. Fear makes people hide even when there is usually no reason to hide.
