The Easter bunny may have been and gone, but one giant rabbit is enjoying her life under lockdown at a Suffolk College.
The former Otley College campus is based eight miles out of Ipswich near Ashbocking and is home to a variety of animals including goats, alpacas, ferrets, snakes, spiders, sugar gliders and a giant tortoise.
While students are completing their learning online, four dedicated members of staff are living at the college farm to care for the animals.
Albie is a Continental giant rabbit and has been spoiled with daily walks and her own new paddock area.
Layla Sharpe, animal unit manager, has been walking Albie every day with a harness.

“We have also started a hamster breeding programme and we are all keeping busy to make sure that we are ready to go when the lockdown is lifted.”
