A vegan activist who was shot at while ‘rescuing’ animals from a Spanish farm has been accused of killing more than 90 rabbits during her mission.

Barcelona-based ‘Mythical Mia’ claimed she had saved 16 rabbits from the land in Osona, Catalonia, before being allegedly shot at by angry farmers.

She shared a video of herself covered in blood, telling the camera bullets had broken a car window, causing her to be sprayed with glass.

However, her ‘rescue mission’ has now been blasted by residents in the area who say more than 90 rabbits had to be euthanized as a result of her actions.

According to newspaper La Vanguardia, several of the rabbits taken by Mia had just given birth – meaning their offspring were left without the essential care of their mothers.

Five other pregnant rabbits allegedly died due to the intrusion, while others reportedly suffered broken spines or miscarried as a result of the stress.

The publication reports that before Mia’s arrival, the farm had 3,000 rabbits, with 700 of them believed to be around three days old.

Mia told her followers on Instagram that she had left the site ‘peacefully’ before the farmers chased her and fellow campaigners down the motorway.

The activist said police then refused to escort them home and 10 minutes later one of the farmer’s cars pulled up alongside her and opened fire.

She continued: ‘The window exploded in my face and there was a lot of blood from all the glass.

‘Despite everything, I am just happy that those 16 lives are free from harm. They make everything worth it.’

Mia has denied causing the death of any rabbits at the farm, calling it ‘false information’ and insisting that she only touched the rabbits that were rescued.

She continued: ‘We were inside that farm for less than five minutes and we only touched the rabbits who we rescued, who are all doing fine now, despite being very sick when rescued due to the filthy living conditions of that farm.

‘We did not leave any babies without their mothers as we only rescued young ones. We had a professional vet on site with us the whole time.’

A spokeswoman for Catalonia police said of the incident: ‘On Sunday, September 1 at 7.30pm, a group of activists entered a farm in Gurb, Osona, and took 14 rabbits.

‘When Mossos d’Esquadra arrived at the site, the activists were outside. The 14 rabbits have not been found. There were some farmers at the scene and there was tension between the two groups.

‘Mossos separated them and escorted them from the premises to avoid further conflict.

‘Just before 11pm, we were informed that one of the windows of an activist’s car had suffered an impact – and that a girl had injuries to her face as a result of the broken glass.

‘The window was most likely struck by a forceful object, due to the nature of the impact, rather than a shot from a shotgun.’
