THE RSPCA is appealing for information after three rabbits were found apparently dumped at the side of a Newport road.

A member of the public contacted the RSPCA after the rabbits were found in fields near Penylan Cottages, Bassaleg, Newport, on Wednesday evening [6 May].

The three domestic rabbits were collected by RSPCA inspector Simon Evans who took them to a veterinary surgery for a check up.
