Police hunt 'mad vegetarian' vandalising butchers shops in Bristol. Police are hunting a hooded man who is believed to be behind the vandalism of six butchers shops in Bristol. Shopkeepers at the family-run stores believe a 'mad vegetarian' could be behind the attacks, which began eight weeks ago. Between them, the shops have had their windows or door smashed with a brick a total of 11 times. Adrian Cunliffe, director of Millhouse Family Butchers, believes the two attacks on his shop could be animal rights-related since no attempt was made to steal anything either time.
