A 'Shocking and Deeply Saddening' Crime
The animal killing at Brent Lodge Park - how could anyone do it?
A totally despicable crime that has shocked the people of Ealing and beyond.
Police are continuing their investigations following the killing of Bruce - a wallaby at Brent Lodge Park.
The animal was found by keepers on 20th October - it had been decapitated.
Here, Councillor Bassam Mahfouz writes to Ealing Today about this disgusting attack and urges everyone to show their support for the park, the animals and the keepers.
Shocked and deeply saddened... the immediate emotions I felt when I got the phone call to let me know of the horrific news that someone had not only broken into a pen at the wonderful Bunny Park, but killed a poor defenceless animal.
It is shocking that somebody would do this to such a poor defenceless creature and the manner in which it was done. Clearly we need to find out who was responsible and I am appealing for anyone who has any information about the incident to come forward and let the police know. Please call Ealing Police on 020 8721 7030 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
I’ve been back a few times to the park and it’s still the same wonderful place it’s always been.
I’d encourage everyone to take the opportunity this weekend to take the family down and show their support for the Animal Centre team and to Rolph.
