Why Rabbit Control is Often Required
It’s estimated that wild rabbits cause well upwards of £50 millon in damage to agricultural crops in the UK annually. Indeed some estimates put the figure nearer to £100 million and at times there is no choice but to control them either through exclusion or extermination techniques.
Rabbit populations can also fall victim to disease. The best known of these is myxomatosis, which is carried from rabbit to rabbit by fleas. In severe cases the rabbits end up being blind, lose body weight and experience a slow death, although there is evidence that populations are developing a degree of resistance to this disease, which was introduced to the population by man in the 1950s.
Less well known is the virus VHD, which is transmitted by contact and can also be airborne. This causes blood to be visible from the rabbit’s orifices, and the rabbits usually die within 48 hours. Due to the fact that the rabbit is a community animal, diseases can spread very quickly and swift action can be required simply on animal welfare grounds.
