With Easter recently passed, another "bunny" issue has raised its
floppy ears and cottontail at the University of Victoria in British
Columbia, Canada. For many years past people have been releasing
their unwanted pet rabbits near the campus and over time the "feral"
population has grown to over 1500 bunnies munching and borrowing
throughout the area! After all..they ARE rabbits!
Although an interesting aspect of the Universitie's Culture, local residents
and Campus authority are considering a rather "dramatic" solution to
the infestation. It's call the "Rodenator"! and consists of Propane &
Oxygen being pumped down the rabbit holes then ignited....BOOM
goes bunny! It would make Elmer Fudd smile with pleasure.
Animal Right's activists have taken a dim view of this bomb that makes
Rabbit Stew...and are agitating for a more Humane approach to the problem.
Local Veternarian, Nick Shaw, has offered his services to trap and "fix"
or neuter the rascals but faces a lot of "red tape" and resistance to his
more moderate solution. Another group has suggested employing a group
of local hunters to hunt them down and then donate the victims to the
local Food Banks. Still, another group, thinks the rabbits will be "tough",
hard to eat and may carry disease.
So...the question is....Shoot'em & eat'em..Blow them into "Bunny-bits"
OR let'em be?
So...what say you....Peace in the Valley? Or Rabbit Stew?
(and what is a slydog post w/o a Video..enjoy!)
