Officials from the RSPCA have no idea how a rabbit found on the roof of a house in Liverpool late last week got there. The adorable, white bunny was spotted by a pedestrian walking around the neighborhood.
According to YahooNews, the fire department assisted staff of the RSPCA rescuing the little guy, but everyone continues to scratch their head wondering how the bunny, dubbed Lily, got there in the first place. Of the two plausible theories – Matt Brown, an officer from the RSPCA offered his thoughts:
“…the rabbit has been picked up by a bird from the garden and dropped on the roof, or that someone had thrown her up there. We got her to a vet and thankfully she had no injuries. However, we were still confused about how she got up there as it is incredibly unlikely she’d have been able to have hopped up herself.”
Staff went door to door in the neighborhood to find out where Lily belonged, and soon came across her owner who lives near to where the bunny was found. The latch gate to Lily’s hatch had been opened, seemingly to suggest someone came in and stole her and propped her up on the roof as a sick prank. Although it is doubtful the mystery of the rabbit on the roof will ever be solved, Lily is doing find and relaxing in the safety of her hutch.
