Rabbits are being thoughtlessly “dumped” in people’s gardens in Sudbury, according to Emily Hauth, from Odies Warren rabbit retreat.
Emily says she has seen an increase in the number of pet rabbits being left to fend for themselves.
She said: “There is a rise of rabbits being dumped. Last week, we had three phone calls with bunnies being found in people’s gardens.
“We try to find the original owner. If the rabbits are being deliberately abandoned, it’s hard to say why.”
Emily, who is pictured with Treacle, a one-year-old female rabbit who came to Odies with only three-and-a-half legs, says there are more than 20 rabbits at the rehoming centre in Second Avenue, Sudbury.
