A heartfelt plea is being made by Tameside’s Greenspace Team to ask people to stop abandoning pet rabbits in Ashton’s Stamford Park.

The appeal comes after a number of incidents where domestic rabbits have been found abandoned outside the aviary in the park.

Deborah Kaufmann from Greenspace said: “People think because we’ve got rabbits here we can take them in, but we don’t have the capacity.

“It’s cruel to just abandon them; they’re vulnerable to attacks by dogs, foxes and other wild
rabbits that we have in the park.”
