The Scottish SPCA is appealing for information after three dead domestic rabbits were found in Glenrothes.

Their bodies were found in the town's Peploe Drive on Saturday (16 October) by a member of the public.

The animals were handed in to Kingdom Veterinary Clinic, who called the charity’s animal helpline to report the incident.

Robyn Gray, an inspector for the charity, said: "The three rabbits are all white, domestic animals.

"They did not have any obvious injuries when they were found and were not microchipped.

"Although there are wild rabbits living in Scotland, domesticated rabbits are not equipped with the skills needed to survive the elements and predators in the wild.

"We’re keen to find out how these rabbits came to be in this location and the circumstances leading up to their deaths.

"If anyone has any information on this incident they can contact our confidential animal helpline on 03000 999 999."
