A giant bunny is one of a number of animals given a new home this Easter after being adopted by Scotland’s Rural College.
Thumper was donated to the college by bosses at Codona’s Amusement Park in Aberdeen after they closed their animal barn.
The five-year-old female rabbit has proved ear-resistible to animal care students at SRUC’s Craibstone campus in Aberdeen.
Aiden Forrest, who is studying for a National Certificate in Introduction to Animal Care, said: “Thumper is a huge rabbit and I was a bit unsure about handling her to begin with, but I had nothing to worry about.
“Handling her is a bit different due to her size, but it is a challenge I have enjoyed.”
Thumper was one of several animals from the amusement park looking for somebunny to love her – with three other rabbits, four degus and three rats also given a new home at the college.
SRUC lecturer Debbie Dowding said: “Thumper loves a walk around the bunny garden and to sit on your lap and get groomed.”
