Rangers at Draycote Water park near Rugby in Warwickshire say they are baffled by the mystery appearance of piles of carrots.
The mounds have been left in random places at the Severn Trent Water visitor attraction on a number of occasions.
Piles were found on:
- 31 March
- 12 May
- 16 July
- 25 July
- 1 August
They are appealing for help to find out who is leaving them at the park, and why...
We’re really puzzled by this one...
They don’t get eaten by wild animals like rabbits; they simply remain in little piles, so we’re picking them up.
At first we thought it was just a one off, but then more kept arriving. So we’ve been taking them to Ollie’s Yard, a sanctuary for horses and ponies, nearby.
We’d like them to be used by a good cause, but we’re also keen to understand why they’re being left at Draycote Water.
Rangers are asking anyone who might know why the carrots are being left at Draycote to tweet them.
