furry visitors

These hares were introduced to New Zealand for food and sport.





As cute as these little critters are, they are nothing but a nuisance.  Of course, I have to give our cat, Grace, some credit for trying to keep the population down--she brings in many little ones in the spring; one night she brought in four!!

In England where they belong they are not too much trouble. They do well on the large modern fields as they like the wide open spaces where they can see any danger coming.

They look like the jackrabbits found on the plains of the western US.

Sounds like Florida, where introduced species tend to thrive a little too well.

They are cute though to look at.

That looks suspiciously like our European Brown Hare. Once again, man interfering with the natural world and making a mess of it.

So sad they have become a nuisance...much like the house sparrows and starlings introduced here...my little bunnies are kept in check by natural predators..

I hope to never be so hungry I have to eat a rabbit.
