BBC hunt for Hampstead Heath wallaby

28 May, 2019

A wallaby found in Highgate six years ago – now there has been a sighting on the Heath of another one

THE BBC sent a reporter searching for a wallaby on Hampstead Heath after a sighting was reported in last week’s CNJ.

Vanessa Feltz’s BBC London show joined the hunt on Tuesday.

The RSPCA’s Jill Sanders said seeing one was unlikely. “Normally by the time we get there, it’s probably run off,” she said. “On Hampstead Heath, they’ve got everything they want.” Ms Feltz said she herself was amazed to have seen a “profusion” of wild rabbits near Kenwood recently.
