A young rabbit which had been attacked by a cat has been rescued by Secret World Wildlife Rescue.

The East Huntspill charity has been looking after the small bunny since it was found in a woman’s garden.

The animal, which weighs just 120 grams, had been caught in a field by her pet cat but is now being cared for at Secret World’s headquarters in New Road.

The charity’s founder Pauline Kidner said: “With spring just around the corner we will soon be seeing lots of baby rabbits around.

“Young rabbits may look helpless but they are usually not far from their warren, so there is no need for the public to intercept them unless there is imminent danger from traffic or predators.”

The rabbit, which escaped uninjured, is still being syringe-fed milk but has started eating greens so will soon be ready to be weaned.
