Have your say

Flopsy the rabbit had a wobbly start to life after being dumped in a park with a rare disability meaning her legs are splayed at an angle.

The poor rabbit was abandoned with her two siblings and father in a cardboard box, before vets discovered she was suffering from splayed leg - where her legs stick out at a right angle.

The cotton-tailed cutie has been re-homed by kind-hearted vet Ellie Newall, and now has a special hutch with no steps meaning she can get about with little difficulty.

Flopsy’s unusual condition may shorten her life and means she struggles to walk.
