A WORD of advice for all those involved in rabbit-busting - don't tell the kids at the Blessed Sacrament Primary school in Mosman, Sydney.When the students found out the local council was fixing a rabbit invasion in parks with a baiting program, they hopped to and demanded it stop.
The council was bombarded with letters from the kids who said it was cruel and inhumane, forcing the council to back down and look at a trap-and-euthanise system.
But at least the kids had some helpful suggestions for alternative to poisoning. "Send the rabbits to pre-school. It could be great fun," one told the Mosman Daily.
And Back Paddock's favourite: "You can just Taser them and send them to another country, for example, England."
Yes, there would be some poetic justice in that, wouldn't there?
