It's not human life the murderer's after, but the cute little creature in backyard is the main target for this serial killer in Germany is looking for. I don't know what grudge does this killer is holding towards pet rabbit, but it must be really serious since more than 30 pet rabbits were killed.
Elfriede Dumont, the rabbit owner told a story that's happen to her pet rabbit. One morning, when I came out to feed my rabbits, I was surprised to see that the hutch door was open," recalls Elfriede. "I looked inside and saw Rocco just lying there. His head was missing. A little later I found Felina in the bushes. She'd been killed, too. I just cannot understand why."
Elfriede Dumont cannot understand the motive for killing her pets. Me neither.
Rocco and Felina are among the 30 pet rabbits killed in the towns of Witten and Dortmund since last summer.
Many of the rabbits have been decapitated and the blood drained from their bodies. "I would never expect something to happen here," says Elfriede's granddaughter, Sabrina. "This place is so quiet. You can leave your car open and everything's fine. Yet there are people who murder rabbits!"
At the same time, police fear the attacker could switch from killing rabbits to killing people. "It's always the same," Officer Schuette explains. "Detectives find the rabbit lying dead in a hutch. An unknown person has cut off the head and drained off the blood in a box or a bottle. So we find no blood and no head."
It is one of the most shocking cases of animal cruelty that Germans can remember. This case makes me sick!
