Orphan rabbits make full recovery with help from RSPCA Brighton News

TWO baby rabbits are on the mend after being orphaned.

A farmer found them in a hay bale. They were without their mother who is presumed dead.

The baby rabbits (kittens) were handed over to the RSPCA Mallydams Wood Wildlife Center in Hastings.

Initially, they were unable to fend for themselves because they were so young, which meant that the staff had to hand-feed them three times a day until they grew older.

Rabbits have made a full recovery and can now return to the wild to live in their natural habitat.

The RSPCA is gearing up for its busiest time of year as it experiences the peak of animals admitted to aid in May, June and July. In 2020, more than 13,000 animals were admitted to the rescue of the four RSPCA Wildlife Centers.
