Scottish SPCA appeal for information after rabbit found in plastic bag in Peterhead

We are appealing for information after a rabbit was discovered in a plastic bag in Peterhead.

RabbitWe were alerted by a member of the public who found the rabbit on 30 April in a ditch in the Mintlaw area. 

Manager of our Animal Rescue and Rehoming centre in Aberdeen, Graeme Innes said, “It’s very lucky a member of the public found this rabbit.

“The mini lop type rabbit was found in a plastic bag, in a ditch so could have easily been missed.

“He has been named Bernie by the staff and was discovered to have an identification ring but part of the code is illegible so we are unable to trace this. 

“If anyone in the area recognises the rabbits, or has any information, we would urge them to contact our confidential animal helpline on 03000 999 999.”
