Alarm has been raised after a second rabbit was found dead in Dagenham in the space of a week. 

The grey and white rabbit - believed to have been run over by a car - was found on a driveway in Pasture Road with blood coming out of its mouth.

Katie Moore, who volunteers with animal finders Scruffy's Angels, was alerted to the deceased animal yesterday morning (January 17).

She told the Post: "It was a beautiful little boy, and he's got to be someone's pet.

"I don't know if he escaped and then got run over, or he was abandoned and left on the streets. It's absolutely devastating."

The volunteer has been left reeling by the second death in seven days, after a "frozen" bunny was found in an Amazon box in Goresbrook Park on January 10.

Sadly, the pet died hours later. The suspected owners have been reported to the RSPCA, Katie said.
