Why Rabbit Control is Often Required
It’s estimated that wild rabbits cause well in excess of £50millon in damage to agricultural crops in the UK every year. 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 succumb disease. The best known of these is myxomatosis, which is carried from rabbit to rabbit by fleas. In severe cases the rabbits become blind, lose body weight and experience a slow death, although there is evidence that populations are developing a level of immunity to this disease, which was introduced to the population by man in the 1950s.
Less well known is the virus VHD, which is transferred by contact and can also be airborne. This causes blood to be visible from the rabbit’s orifices, and the creatures usually die within 48 hours. Because the rabbit is a community animal, diseases can spread very quickly and swift action can be necessary simply on animal welfare grounds.
