In de­fence of rab­bits

The Dominion Post - - Opinion -

Who needs Bashar al-As­sad when you have our very own Greater Welling­ton Re­gional Coun­cil re­leas­ing bi­o­log­i­cal war­fare on our rab­bit pop­u­la­tion.

What is with New Zealan­ders and their ha­tred of small, furry mam­mals? OK, so we brought them here, but now they are here why can’t Ki­wis ac­cept them?

I get as much joy out of see­ing a rab­bit or a hare (ex­cept when they are chew­ing the stem of one of my saplings) as a tui, fan­tail or mag­pie.

I cer­tainly won’t en­joy see­ing a rab­bit dy­ing in agony from an im­ported virus that I have ‘‘helped’’ fund through my GWRC rates bill. NEIL DOU­GLAS Carter­ton
