University of Victoria Bunnies to be Sterilized, Relocated

Athletic Fields at the University of Victoria have been damaged by about 150 feral rabbits, causing a potential hazard for student athletes. As a result university officials have decided to round up the rabbits and have them sterilized and relocated.

The school hired a wildlife damage-control company to remove the rabbits to an animal sanctuary.

The plan is to create rabbit free zones around the school and reduce the rabbit population to a manageable level.

    Hello,

    I’m very distressed about the fate of these beautiful creatures, below is my answer to the UVic rabbit problem.

    Once rounded up these rabbits, left unaltered could be relocated into the mountains where cougars, bears, coyotes, etc would benefit in the way of food. The rabbits would continue to reproduce offering a continued source of food, this may keep the wild out of urban areas and away from our children.

    The rabbits are wild and therefore should not be placed in homes, they should not be relocated to the US, they should remain here, unaltered, unharmed and free to live as rabbits should in the mountains.

    Sincerely yours,
    Corri Donald
