An animal charity has launched a nationwide appeal to reunite a Dutch ferret with his owner.
The 18-month-old ferret was discovered by staff in an aircraft hangar at Marshall Aerospace and Defence Group in Newmarket Road, Cambridge on Sunday evening.
Vincent, as he has been named by animal carers at animal charity Wood Green, was brought to the charity’s Godmanchester centre in Cambridgeshire on Monday where he was checked over by a vet and scanned for a microchip.
Staff at the centre were surprised to discover the chip was registered in the Netherlands but have been unsuccessful in tracking down Vincent’s owner.
It is thought the plucky pet could have boarded a C-130 Hercules aircraft from the town of Eindhoven in the Netherlands and travelled the hour long flight to Cambridge.
Vincent will be cared for at Wood Green until his owner comes forward or he is rehomed to a new family.
