David Hoskins, 60, discovered bite marks below the hood of a Toyota C-HR that he was fixing at Hofmann’s garage in Henley-on-Thames, Oxfordshire.

The mechanics were startled to discover a nervous but apparently healthy rabbit upon closer scrutiny.

Unbelievably, the animal is said to have been trapped inside the vehicle for some time after climbing in for warmth.The group put the bunny in a box and took it to the vets. The animal was then released back into the wild

After a checkup at the Henley Veterinary Centre, where it was determined to be unharmed, it was then released back into the wild.

The mechanics discovered a live rabbit caught within the engine of a car after the driver brought it in for service because a dashboard light was blinking.

The group placed the rabbit in a box and transported it to the vet. The animal was subsequently returned to its natural habitat.

David stated, “This was our first rabbit, and it was alive.” We occasionally discover rats and mice, but it must have been in there for quite a while.

It is fortunate that it survived.

When they noticed cables that had been eaten in the engine, they began to investigate inside the vehicle, according to him.

Joe Tomczyk, a colleague of David, stated, “I’ve never seen anything like it.”

David continued, “After further investigation, we discovered the rabbit peering back at us from the inside of the front bumper.”

It was still alive and simply observing us. It seems to have crept behind the hood and been lodged there.

It must have been really hot inside, but at least it wasn’t tangled up in the equipment.

It is not the first time that British mechanics have encountered the little organisms in a vehicle’s engine.

Gari Wyn Hones, a garage proprietor in Wales, saw a pet rabbit’s snout twitching from under the dashboard in 2020, and he returned it to its owners.

In June, a rabbit traveled 70 miles from Camber Sands to Plumstead in a vehicle engine.
