Just thought I had better let everyone in the Beds and Bucks area to be on their guard for buns going missing. There were two mixed breed buns taken from a garden here in Leighton Buzzard recently. As they were free range it was first thought they had escaped. There were no gaps in the garden for them to get out and no sign of fur left behind if they had been taken by another animal. We learnt this last week of 3 Netherland Dwarfs being taken from Houghton Regis. Don`t know if they were in an enclosure or free range. On a good note someone has found a chocolate rex roaming around gardens near where they live so have taken it in and advertised the finding in local shops. It made me wonder if this was one that got away. I cannot imagine how these people must be feeling. I would be totaly gutted if my two went missing.

How worrying :( It's sad that we have to keep our buns under lock and key. I hope the missing buns are found.

they may be stolen but if they were left unsupervised they may also have been taken by predators..fur is not always left. Foxes, cats and birds of prey will take rabbits..and if same area could mean same predator/family of predators realising pets are easy dinners
An increase in security against human and animal thieves would be sensible including only allowing free range time when owner is in the garden with pets and runs with strong lids on and well attached

It's the not knowing what has happened.

I hope that they are safe and well.........somewhere.

I don`t know about the Nethies being free range anyway, we just had a phonecall at the shop to let us know about them. Yes it is likely they have been taken by a predator but I am sure the last thing these poor people need is telling they could have been dinner for another creature. The instances were quite a few miles away from eachother. I just thought it was worth warning people to be extra vigilant.
