Thanks.

    AS RABBITS LIVE COMMUNALLY IN FAMILY GROUPS IT WOULD BE UNKIND TO MOVE ONE TO A NEW PLACE AS IT WOULD BE SHUNNED BY AN ALREADY RESIDENT POPULATION. 

    I HAVE NO IDEA IF IT IS LEGAL BUT IT IS CERTAINLY NOT KIND.

    I have one rabbit, he didnt bring his family. I will return him from whence he came!

    They traps all look the same online and im not convinced they work. I did think i read a post that someone was successfully trapping rabbits live, but of course i cant find it now.

    Bought one at £30. Im followong the instructions, but no rabbit, and its not taking the bait near the trap, but it is eating my cabbages and purple sprouting broccoli.

    Outside my gate. They live under the neighbours woodpile, and under the other neighbours garage etc its rabbit wonderland here.

    we've got a rabbit warren on our land, and also a fox's den. They seem to have reached  a balance. The fox/ foxes keep the rabbit numbers under control.

    I'm not sure your bunny wouldn't come back from the woodpile once you've released it.

    No foxes really near here, its shooting land. How do you mean come back from the woodpile?

    Once they find the restaurant - they'll just keep coming back. Some years they will be worse than others. There's a very good way of dealing with them, but you may not want to go down that route....image

    Otherwise - you'll just have to create physical barriers round anything susceptible....

    ...and that's probably everything image

    It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....
