Edinburgh Love Gorgie Farm has animals stolen with guinea pig still missing
A guinea pig is still missing from Love Gorgie Farm after the recovery of most of the animals that were taken on Wednesday.
The animals were stolen between 11am and 2pm on Wednesday. A rabbit and four guinea pigs were taken from the farm which caused them "huge distress" as the rabbit needs to have daily medication administered.
With help from police, Thumper the rabbit and three of the guinea pigs, Willow, Badger and Winnie, have all been found safe and sound.
Unfortunately Mary the guinea pig was not found with the others. Love Gorgie Farm has asked the community to continue assisting police with any information.
The farm took to social media to share the updated plea. They said: “Thank you sincerely from all the team here. Due to all your support we have managed to recover all but one of our missing babies.
“Unfortunately Mary our long haired black and white Guinea pig was not with them. This is an ongoing investigation and any information would be greatly appreciated.
“From all of us here at LOVE Gorgie Farm thank you all so very much, please continue to share and let’s hope Mary can be returned safely.
“All the animals rescued are fine just a little confused but getting all the love and cuddles from staff”
