New Zealand needs to kill these adorable rabbits

quote [ Every year on Easter in the Otago region of New Zealand, people gather to shoot thousands of bunnies. A police officer is on hand, not to arrest the hunters but rather to spur them on. This is the annual Easter bunny hunt, and by the time the day is done there will be literal piles of rabbit carcasses.

In bunny lore, this is a ritualistic massacre. In human terms, it’s a culling. New Zealand is overrun with rabbits, and those adorable bun-buns you may have seen perched atop sheep are no exception. ]

NZ is a blood-soaked killing field for all the little cuties.

Seriously, they've got to go.

Rabbits have no good reason to be wild in NZ. They need shooting and they are delicious.

Here's something weven you pervs might not know - that 'flap' under the rabbit's chin (in the photo) is where female rabbits store the fat they draw on to produce milk. It's a titty!!!

Unless their chin has a nipple it is a faux-titty at best.

TL;DR: invasive and out performing other wild life. Quick fixes to the rabbit problem caused worse problems- so all the unique Flora and Fauna of NZ is getting fucked. By rabbits and friends (but at least rabbits are good eat'n) but not as good as endangered kiwi eggs/chicks probably.

When I was a little kid, we had a pet coon. Can verify, they're cute and fun until they're not, and then it's a disaster and heart breaker.
