Stuffed fox and parrot included in list of minicab lost property

Along with mobile phones, keys, wallets, umbrellas, shoes, the quick poll of Kabbee’s 60 licensed minicab fleets revealed the top nine most unusual items are:

  1. Taxidermy fox
  2. Whip with latex underwear
  3. Diamond ring
  4. £5,000 cash
  5. Parrot
  6. Mini cheese grater
  7. Adult’s gold tooth
  8. Inflatable Zimmer frame
  9. Helium tank

Justin Peters, Kabbee CEO and founder, said: “The moment a passenger gets into a minicab, they put a great amount of trust in that driver. At Kabbee, we are encouraging our minicab fleets to reduce the amount of lost property found by drivers, by reminding passengers to check the back seat before they leave the vehicle, in the hope that no items are left behind.

“We put all licensed minicab firms through a tough 30-point check before they can provide quotes via the Kabbee app – and one of them is to ensure they have a full and accurate lost property folder, so that in the event that an item is left behind, it can be quickly returned to its owner.”
