In the UK, Rabbits are classed as
a major agricultural and horticultural pest. It is estimated that Rabbits cause in excess of £100 million worth of damage
to agricultural and horticultural land each year. Under the 1954 Pests Act, landowners are obliged to actively control the
Rabbit population on their land. Rabbits not only cause millions of pounds worth of damage to agricultural and horticultural
land, they may also cause damage to managed woodlands, amenity, recreational and leisure facilities creating public health
risks, they also undermine embankments, buildings and other structures.
Rabbits & hares are very effective plant
destroying machines, not merely eating enough to get-by, their insatiable appetite for new things & destruction causes
much damage throughout the garden.
Speculative chewing of nearly everything to find
what tastes best, the uprooting of new plants, the stripping of bark from trees, and of course digging holes in your lawn
for you to turn your ankle in, all make rabbits many gardener’s most hated enemy.
So what can be done?
You could find a good recipe for rabbit stew,
get an air rifle or ferret & go on a spree, though as everyone knows nothing breeds quite like rabbits & in most locations
new bunnies will soon move in to replace the killed ones.
