Dead rabbits dumped on roadside in New Parks, Leicester
The RSPCA is investigating after three dead rabbits were found dumped by the side of a road in New Parks, Leicester.
The rabbits were left inside a wire crate which was found by a member of the public on January 31 in New Parks Boulevard.
The rabbits had been dead for a substantial amount of time and were decomposed.
Due to the degree of decomposition a vet was unable to determine the cause of death.
The RSPCA is appealing for anyone who may have seen someone acting suspiciously in the area to get in touch.
A spokesman said: "The location where the rabbits were dumped is a busy area, so it is not thought they had been left at the location long."
Anyone with information is urged to call on the RSPCA inspector appeal line on 0300 123 8018 and ask for a message to be passed to animal welfare officer Richard Durant.
