Two Ingersoll girls received an unexpected lesson on one of the Ten Commandments late Easter Sunday.
The owners of a barn north of Ingersoll had purchased two rabbits as Easter gifts for their grandchildren.
Sometime between noon and 6 p.m. Sunday, the rabbits were stolen from the Road 64 barn.
Police were called, and determined that the animals had been stolen by two girls who were trying to sell them.
Oxford County OPP say they located the girls, aged 11 and 9, and warned them in front of their parents.
The rabbits were reunited with the barn owners’ grandchildren, who were reportedly “quite happy to receive their Easter gifts.”
