Pets ‘put through letterboxes’

‘A mum-of-three was “devastated” today after sickos apparently killed and pushed her family’s much-loved pets through letterboxes.

Two rabbits and five guinea pigs – four of them pregnant – were stolen from Paula Beard’s back garden in Rotherham, South Yorkshire.

Animal remains were later found smeared over cars, in gardens and pushed through letterboxes a mile away in Wath-upon-Dearne.

South Yorkshire Police believe the two incidents may be linked and are appealing for witnesses in the area.

Mrs Beard, 37, said she was “absolutely devastated” when she found the runs and cages empty on her patio.

“My pets are my life – they’re like my kids,” she said.’
