Four orphaned Easter bunnies now in the care of animal lover named Doolittle

By Staff Reporter

They look adorable - but these tiny rabbit kittens have had a tough start in life.

The furry orphans were found in the grounds of the Ulster Folk Museum near the Ballycultra exhibits. Sadly, their mother was found dead nearby. But the four - already nicknamed Flopsy, Mopsy, Cottontail and Fluff - are now safe, warm and being hand-reared by aptly-named wildlife rescuer Debbie Doolittle.

"What a strange place to leave your babies... So lucky they were found.!" Debbie said yesterday via social media. On its Facebook site, the Ulster Folk and Transport Museum said: "As much as we would love to keep these Easter bunnies, a big thank you to Debbie Doolittle's Wild Life for rescuing them so quickly."

Once reared, the rabbits will be released back into the wild.
