  14. Appeal after gerbils found abandoned

    The RSPCA are appealing for information after two gerbils were found dumped in a plastic box in Sheffield.

    Gerbils in a plastic box

    The gerbils, called Longclaw and Needle, were found in a storage box outside student accommodation in Priory Place, Sheffield on Monday 9 July.

    RSPCA Inspector Kim Greaves who collected the gerbils, said it's very sad to see animals abandoned and wants to find out who did it.

    “No matter how many times I come across dumped animals, I still find it incredibly surprising that someone can do this.

    "Unfortunately, we live in a disposable, throwaway society so even though these are sentient beings they are still dumped when their owner decides they no longer want them."

    Luckily, the gerbils have now been rehoused.

    In an article on their website, Fox News say they spoke to residents in the South Yorkshire town about the US President's visit to the UK.

    Speaking to market stall holders, one person says they'd shake his hand if Mr Trump came to Barnsley.

    Amber Rose Roberts congratulated Mr Trump on being strong in the role.

    "You’ve upset some people, but you’ve also really got some of the community together and feel proud to be American,” she told the website.
