Let the rabbits roam

Natural balance. The rabbits help sustain it here. They have their part to play and are here for a reason. Other forms of life thrive because of them. We all know this.

Kill them off in order to save other forms of life? Which native plant and animal species are threatened by the rabbits? And which thrive because of them? How does extermination of life support life? One of our jobs on these islands is to protect, support and manage the life here, not annihilate it. Right?

Let the bunnies live.
