Three kittens found dumped like rubbish in a bin liner and left in Birmingham Park

The RSPCA is appealing for information after three kittens were found dumped like rubbish in a black bin liner was discarded in a Birmingham Park.

A woman who lives opposite the park in Musgrave Road in Winson Green noticed the bin liner appeared to move when she walked past it, so she went to explore.

When she opened the bag, she saw three cute kittens, aged about three months old and contacted the RSPCA.

Animal rescuer Cara Gibbon was sent to the scene and took the adorable kittens to the RSPCA’s Birmingham Animal Centre, at Newbrook, where they will be cared for until they are ready to be rehomed.

Staff at the centre have named the kittens after presenters of the BBC’s Top Gear TV show with a ginger male called Clarkson, a black male called May and a white male called Hammond.

Cara is now appealing for information to find the person responsible for dumping the kittens – who were found on Wednesday (30th) afternoon.

She said: “The kittens were absolutely adorable and were in really good health – I find it heart-breaking that someone could just dump them like pieces of rubbish. I am keen to trace the person responsible and I am appealing for anyone who knows who is responsible or maybe saw something suspicious in the area to contact me.

“Fortunately, the kittens are now doing well in RSPCA care and should be ready for rehoming later this week from the Birmingham Animal Centre.”

Anyone with information should contact the RSPCA appeals line on 0300 123 8018. For information about pets who need rehoming from the Birmingham centre, visit
