Saved from the shredder

WHO says only cats have nine lives?

Take a look at this adorable little white, fluffy bunny saved from the shredder by an eagle-eyed worker yesterday.

The bunny, was discovered by workers when they were sorting through green waste collected from households on Wednesday.

And it is thought the furry little friend found his way into the green bin, which was then dumped into a waste disposal truck, compacted and dropped off at the Handy Bin Waste Services depot in Englands Road on Wednesay night.

"We were both shocked and amazed to find the little creature," said Gerry McGilvray, who works at the depot.

"He was very lucky, as we were just about to start the shredder and someone spotted something white," she added.

Now workers are acting as surrogate parents for the rabbit and spent last night at the home of a member of staff.

"We'd love to return him or her to the rightful owner," said Gerry.

"We know our collections on Wednesday were in Woolgoolga and the northern beaches, a bit in the town centre (of Coffs) and in Bellingen and Urunga."

Anyone who has lost a white rabbit in the past few days, can contact the Handybin Waste Services depot on 6652 1733.
