MEET Lucky’ the abandoned fluffy bunny who’s managed to hop into a temporary cardboard box home.
The poor little rabbit was dumped half-starved and neglected in a cage left outside Spitalfields city farm in London’s East End.
But it escaped before farm staff realised it was there and disappeared, as rabbits do.

Then someone found it running loose in the grounds of Thomas Buxton primary school next door and brought it to the farmyard.
The bunny was “nothing but skin and bones” and had no hair on its legs after being badly neglected, according to Spitalfields City Farm’s Helen Galland.

“The poor thing had obviously not been fed for a while and looked terrified,” she told the East London Advertiser.
“It was so badly neglected we’re still not sure what sex it is. Lucky is a sad example of what happens when pets are mistreated.”
Lucky, as staff named it, is making a speedy recovery on a daily diet of carrots and lettuce and things bunnies like.
The farm has left the door open (not the cage door) for anyone who can offer it a good home. What a lucky bunny!
