Tommy Lee Jr. y Lim, a resident of General Luna Street, Sta. Cruz, here, reported to the police that last August 20, at around 2 a.m., an unidentified robber broke into his breeding farm and took his white kelso breed that he had just acquired for P25,000 from Biboy Enriquez.

In an interview by BICOL STANDARD, Lee said that that was the eighth time that his breeding farm was victimized by still unidentified robbers.

During previous incidents at least 60 heads of breeding material have been lost to robbers.

He further stated that the accumulated value of the said breeding fowls could reach P200,000 since some were still baby stags and pullets.

At present the police are still conducting their follow-up investigation.

He, however, appealed to the public for help for the possible recovery of the said stolen breeding materials.

Furthermore, he also warned breeders as well as those who are raising fighting cocks to be vigilant as there are many reported incidents involving either theft or robbery of said fowls.
