A LUCKY ferret was all at sea when he was rescued by a group of construction workers off Beaumaris.
The male albino ferret was spotted drifting on a raft-like wooden pontoon by workers from BAM Nuttall Ltd, who were carrying out refurbishment work on the town’s pier.
He was rescued and has now been named Kon-Tiki, after the famous raft used by Norwegian explorer Thor Heyerdahl during his 1947 trip across the Pacific Ocean.
He is now in the care of staff at the RSPCA's Bryn-y-Maen Animal Centre in Colwyn Bay, who are now hoping to rehome him.
RSPCA inspector Mike Pugh said: "How the ferret got there is beyond us as it was surrounded by water - clearly if it is a case of abandonment at this strange location then it could have meant all kinds of danger for the ferret.
"Despite this, the ferret has had a lucky break thanks to some caring and quick-thinking construction workers and the RSPCA would just like to say a huge thanks to BAM Nuttall Ltd for their actions.
"It just reminds us that for every rotten apple in society that inflicts cruelty on animals, there are often many more heroes and heroines who help the RSPCA daily in all kinds of ways."
If anyone recognises the description or photograph of the ferret or remembers seeing anything suspicious please call the RSPCA's 24-hour helpline on 0300 1224999.
