RSPCA Cymru is appealing for information after a stray rabbit was found near Knighton after being dumped.

The cream-coloured rabbit was found in the parking area of Kinsley Wood, near Knighton, on Saturday, September 1, at around 3.30pm.

RSPCA inspector Rachael Davies said: “We believe this poor rabbit may have been dumped as the nearest houses are around one to two miles away and the rabbit was found straying in the parking area.

“The caller kindly confined him and and took the rabbit home until I was able to attend.

“We’re appealing for information from the public to try and find out how the rabbit got there and if he is owned. Luckily the rabbit wasn’t injured and has been placed into RSPCA care at RSPCA Bryn-y-Maen Animal Centre. He’s been nicknamed Ralph and apart from being slightly underweight he has no obvious health concerns.

“We will never truly know why people abandon animals. Our experience tells us that it could be down to a number of reasons, for example when owners are unable to cope whether that be with an animal’s behaviour, the costs of keeping the pet or other things in their life take over they opt to dump them.”
