"Upon attending a passer by explained they saw something floating on the water that didn’t look right so fished it out and saw it was an animal inside a pet carrier.

"Upon further inspection we saw that there was a large black and white rabbit inside along with a couple of bricks. We have checked the rabbit for a chip, but no chip was found."
