It wouldn’t be unusual to find rats rummaging around bins.

But in Fife two domestic white rats have been found dumped. The male rats were discovered inside a large cage, beside a wheelie bin in Hill Street in Inverkeithing last week.

Now nicknamed Bazil and Bond, the abandoned rodents are in the care of the Scottish SPCA, which has launched an investigation into the incident.

Scotland’s animal welfare charity was alerted on Friday, after a resident found the creatures and took them to a nearby vet.

Senior Inspector John Chisholm said: “The lady reported seeing Bazil and Bond next to wheelie bins outside her flat at around 4pm on Wednesday.

“When they were still there at midnight, she took them in and handed them into a vets the next day.”

Mr Chisholm said the charity was keen to identify the person who owned Bazil and Bond, as abandoning animals is an offence.

Anyone with information can call 03000 999 999.
