Police in Nova Scotia have arrested two people after four baby bunnies were stolen from a petting zoo outside Wolfville last week.

Heather Hennigar, who owns Hennigar's Farm Market in Greenwich, said vandals struck the farm twice during the week of Aug. 30 and both times, someone took baby rabbits.

Hennigar said someone also broke the locks, stole from the donation boxes and took a coin operated machine that dispenses feed for the goats.

Distraught volunteers made an online plea on Kijiji to find the animals.

On Wednesday, police found two dead baby rabbits in an apartment building parking lot.

A  22-year-old Kentville man faces a charge of possession of stolen property obtained by crime and obstruction of a police investigation.

A 19-year-old woman, also of Kentville, faces a charge of theft under $5,000 and possession of stolen property obtained by crime.

They’ve both been released and will be in court in November.
