Young ferret given just one percent chance of survival has made a miraculous recovery - after going through a full washing machine cycle

A young ferret which was given just one percent chance of survival has made a miraculous recovery - after going through a full washing machine cycle.

Bandit the ferret suffered severe bruising, a collapsed lung and was on the brink of death when his owners Jackie Redfern and Josh Crosse, both 33, found him in the washer.

They were unaware their furry friend had cosied up in a pile of clothes and gone for a quick nap before he was sent whirling and twirling for 100 MINUTES.

The two-year-old ferret was rushed to Vets4Pets in Leeds, the nearest emergency veterinarian practice, where he was placed on intravenous therapy to save his life.
