Early November, Birmingham UK.
According to national press, Balsall Heath City Farm in Birmingham was the target of a theft where seventeen chickens were stolen. The farm works as a “farm animal zoo” within the city.
This is not the first time the farm has been targeted. During December 2022, the farm was raided four times, where multiple rabbits, guinea pigs and turkeys were taken away.
They say they do not know why anyone would steal the animals and that they are preparing to build a ‘chicken fortress’ that ‘can’t be broken into’.
