AN IPSWICH mum today blasted those responsible for either stealing or setting free her family's pet rabbit.

Helen Cook, of Ascot Drive, discovered four-and-a-half-year-old black female rabbit Ebony was missing earlier this week after noticing her back gate had been unlatched.

She said: “I went to draw the curtains and I saw our gate was open which I thought was odd because I knew I had shut it.

“I noticed a lighter near the hutch and I could see the hutch door was unlocked.

“The handlebars of my son's scooter which was in the shed were inside the hutch. I don't know why though.

“She's either been taken or let out.

“We've looked around for her but can't find her.”

Ms Cook said her children, Sophie, 14 and Adam, ten, were upset at the loss of the much-loved rabbit.

She continued: “It's the sheer silliness of it all which I can't understand. There's doesn't seem to be any sense to it.

“There was nothing else taken apart from the rabbit.

“The police said they know of no other similar incidents. It's so stupid.”

Anyone with information about Ebony should call the police on 01473 613500.
