A REWARD is today on offer for information leading to the return of two rabbits stolen from a Bramford home by callous thieves.

The Evening Star is stumping up a reward of £50 in a bid to track down whoever took the white rabbits, both with brown spots, from a property in Hibbard Road.

Owner of the animals, 45-year-old Mark Kepler, said he was shocked that someone would take his pets, worth just £25 each, and is concerned for their welfare.

He said: “On the morning I noticed they were gone. I had stepped out of the back door and got the feeling something was wrong.

“I noticed that their door was open and the flap was up.

“The rabbits couldn't possibly have done that themselves so I knew someone had taken them.”

The rabbits, both around six-months-old, are called Scrabbit and Honey.

They were taken between 11.30pm on Sunday, November 19, and 9am the following day.

Mr Kepler said: “I am concerned about their welfare because if they have gone to a bad home the poor things are either going to end up in a pot or be mistreated.

“It is a terrible feeling for your pets to disappear and not know what has happened to them or where they have gone.

“I doubt I will get them back but I hope this can highlight to other people that there are thefts like this happening and they should be on the look out.”

Anyone with information about the stolen rabbits is asked to contact police on 01473 613500.

The Evening star will pay a £50 reward to anyone with information that leads to a conviction.
