Meet the real-life Dr. Dolittles who keep a small zoo of 46 pets including guinea pigs, dogs, horses, and budgies. Footage captured on Saturday shows animal-loving Bella Wyllie encouraged her young daughters Poppy, aged seven, and Holly,12, to take responsibility for the 'small zoo' they keep at home.

The menagerie includes an astonishing 24 rabbits — including most recent acquisitions Sylvester and Spud, who arrived just before Christmas, and 11 guinea pigs. They all live at a home in Mauchline, East Ayrshire, along with five horses, three budgies, two dogs and a gecko. 

Compassionate Poppy was so moved when she heard about a pet rabbit which was cruelly kept in a drawer that she was inspired to make a hand-drawn poster urging owners to take proper care of their pets.
