Two rabbits abandoned in carrier in London park


The animal welfare charity is appealing for information after two large rabbits were found in a carrier in Enfield Park by a member of the public.

The rabbits – one white and one brown – were discovered by a dog walker on 20 March at around 12pm. Her dog was sniffing a bush and she realised there was a carrier there with two rabbits inside.

RSPCA inspector Chris McGreal collected the animals and transported them to Finsbury Park Animal hospital for a vet check.

He said: “These poor rabbits were put in a bag and left for someone to find them.

“We know times are tough but abandoning defenceless animals is never the answer. Local animal charities can help provide advice, and should be a first port of call for rehoming enquiries.

“Luckily they were discovered before any harm came to them, and will now be offered loving new homes”.

They have been named Nocciola and Pistachio by hospital staff and have been taken to private boarding.

The RSPCA’s website provides plenty of information about proving the ideal home for rabbits.

The RSPCA is asking anyone with any information about this to contact them on their inspectorate appeal line on 0300 123 8018 quoting incident number 01238510.
