Rab­bit over­crowd­ing re­quires prompt aci­ton

Costa Levante News - - NEWS -

Hunters will have the green light to help con­trol the rab­bit pop­u­la­tion near Castel­lón air­port, as the an­i­mals have turned into a safety hazard on the run­ways.

As well as au­tho­ris­ing hunt­ing ex­pe­di­tions, the com­pany in charge of the air­port, Ae­ro­cas, has in­vested €30,000 to re­in­force the fence that sur­rounds the in­stal­la­tions.

Spokes­peo­ple ex­plain that, as well as the di­rect dam­ages caused by the rab­bits, their pres­ence at­tracts birds of prey, which can in turn lead to is­sues for planes tak­ing off or land­ing.

Mean­while, hunters have stated that clean­ing ad­ja­cent plots of land is also im­por­tant to solve the is­sue.
