THE vegan activist who claimed to have been shot at by farmers after stealing ‘16’ of their rabbits has come under criticism after it emerged her actions may have actually killed almost 100 of them.
‘Mythical Mia’ went on a rescue mission, attempting to save rabbits from a farm, before posting a video of herself on social media with a bloodstained face and legs, claiming the pursuing farmers shot at her through the car window while she was fleeing.
In the video, the Barcelona-based activist told her 40,000 Instagram followers she saved 16 rabbits.
In actuality, 90 bunnies had to be put down because they were left without a mother, according to La Vanguardia.
Five bunnies were reported to have died during the raid, while others suffered broken spines.
On a post on Instagram following the raid, she said: “Despite everything, I am just happy that those 16 lives are free from harm. They make everything worth it.”
