PRLog - Dec. 17, 2012 - Lamont Farm in Erskine, a much loved community farm in Renfrewshire was sadly broken into on Friday 14th December 2012, with 2 unidentified maIes entering the premises at 7.05pm, then re-entering and removing a rabbit hutch between the hours of 7.24pm and 7.25pm. Luckily caught on CCTV and with a very clear photograph of one of the men, Strathclyde Police and Horsewatch Scotland are appealing for any information on this crime, especially the names of those involved.

The CCTV picture shows the men in action. A rabbit hutch worth around 100 pounds was stolen.
The men are also seen entering into a horse enclosure where they take a photo of the animal before leaving, one of the tactics that thieves carry out before returning to steal the horse/pony. Usually mane braiding is used to mark an animal for future theft, but this animal's mane was too short!! Hence the photograph.
We would like to appeal to the public to please share this press release and photograph in the hope of tracing the men responsible, before they return to Lamont Farm or enter any other equine establishment.
