Easter bunny found hopping around Great Yarmouth bus depot in need of a home


This Easter bunny is looking for a home after he was found lopping around Great Yarmouth bus depot on his own.

The young male rabbit, nicknamed Bunnykins, was taken in by the Seal and Bird Rescue Trust in north Norfolk last week after a bus driver found him hopping around the Caister Road depot, cold and hungry.

Bev Cosse, chairman of the Ridlington wildlife rehabilitation centre, wants to reunite Bunnykins with his owner - and if no one comes forward, find him a new home over the Easter break.

'He lead the staff at the depot in a merry dance when they were trying to capture him, but Bunnykins - as we've temporarily named him - is absolutely lovely.

He was taken to the trust on Monday, March 18, for a health check, a warm bed and some food until the owner could be located.'

But no one has yet come forward to claim Bunnykins.

Staff at the centre feel he must be a special pet of someone as he has clearly been looked after and trained.
