Just got out the bath and looked out the window and my albino jill was bouncing down the garden. Chucked some clobber on and ran out, caught her but lost my other poley jill. Had her about 3-4 years and she is mine and my daughter's favourite. I am not looking forward to telling her in the morning.

Top part of hutch had both latches undone, I'm not convinced it was a mistake by me but no evidence of foul play. I have put a trap out to see if I can catch her but not holding my breath, live in middle of fields on edge of a farming village, needle and haystack.

As per title absolutely gutted.

I lost one and she just appeared back at the hutch a couple of days later. Also twice caught them in catch a live traps after losing them whilst out ferreting. Keeper once found a jill a full 3 weeks after I lost her so don’t give up hope.

I had an RSPCA woman turn up in a van with a Jill that had escaped about 3 weeks earlier, was in good health and had been caught by some workers at a unit about 1/4 mile away and the RSPCA asked the local vets if they knew anyone in the area with ferts. 

Good luck mate.

Cheers, D.

Thanks all.

Nothing in the live trap as of yet but guna keep it out with fresh meat in for a few weeks. Probably get a few ferrals and rats along the way!
