Where are Wallace and Gromit when you need them?
The story of multiplying rabbits and there harm to local vegetation is a current problem for Seattle Parks (especially near Woodland Park Zoo). The animals are digging horrible tunnels all around the park killing and damaging trees and local vegetation.
But its a strange nature vs. nature sort of situation...which are more important? Oxygen & Shade Providing Trees or Furry Fuzzy Rabbits.
Well some seem to think you can have your cake and eat it to...so the effort...to capture, seperate by gender and steralize the rabbits...the cost of the this effort for 200-300 rabbits? Well the cities set aside $20,000 and private contributions have come in at about $8,000.
(How much do you think Wallace and Gromit were charging to monitor and use the vacomatic at Lady Tottington's house in "Curse of the Were-Rabbit").
Check out this article for the details.
And if you want to read a short article on why the project has been delayed until fall you can read that here.
Gotta love those Easter bunnies!
