A raccoon dog has been found in a garden near Colchester.

The animal was spotted in Fingringhoe on Saturday in the courtyard of the back of a property.

It's being looked after by the RSPCA who are appealing to find its owner.

If anyone has any information about the animal, please contact the RSPCA’s appeal line on 0300 123 8018.

The poor animal seemed scared and was very timid. I gently coaxed her into a cage then took her to South Essex Wildlife Hospital, which has very kindly agreed to look after her until a permanent home can be found.

The householder put the word out around the village to find the owner, but to date no-one has come forward.
