A rabbit was abandoned in a box by the side of the road with nothing but a teddy bear for comfort.

The lop eared rabbit, named Nigel by the RSPCA, was found in Turnham Road in Lewisham in a cardboard box which had been dumped by the side of the road.

He was spotted by a member of the public who brought him home and contacted the RSPCA.

This poor rabbit had been abandoned in a box in very cold conditions but luckily a kind member of the public spotted him and contacted us.
