Man who took pet hamster to football match criticised by the RSPCA

The RSPCA has criticised a Barnsley football fan who took his pet hamster to a match on Saturday.

The man was spotted with the rodent in his hood as he stood with fellow Barnsley supporters during their game away at Walsall.

Fans nearby chanted: ‘He’s got a hamster in his hood’. Animal welfare charity the RSPCA have condemned the move.

A spokesman said: “Taking any animal to a noisy, crowded environment such as a football match is likely to be stressful. These are animals that need a predictable routine with warmth, peace and quiet and a place to hide in if needed.”
