Scottish SPCA is caring for its first orphaned wildlife of the year

The Scottish SPCA is caring for its first orphaned wildlife resident of the year.    

BentlyWe were alerted to a small, brown hare leveret on 2 February who was found orphaned and alone.

Manager of our National Wildlife Centre Colin Seddon said, “The little leveret, who has been named Bently, is our first orphaned wild animal of the year.

"He was very quiet and listless when he first arrived at the centre but seems to be perking up and is now feeding and appears to be a lot better.

“This is the earliest we have ever received an orphaned leveret before, they usually tend to come in at the end of February and March.

“Our 2019 naming theme for hares brought to the centre is supercars and for rabbits it is normal cars."

Anyone who comes across an injured or potentially orphaned wild animal should contact our animal helpline on 03000 999 999.
