News media has reported that a four-year-old Chihuahua and eight puppies were "stolen" from a breeder late on June 5 in the city of Bruck an der Leitha. The breeder, Christa Guntendorfer, has blamed "radical animal rights activists" for the burglary. She said that she sells about 200 puppies per year, and placed a value of €5000 on the missing dogs.
