Abstract

Agriculture Protection Board Operates a New Front-End Ripper

The ripping-up of rabbit warrens has proved to be one of the most effective rabbit control techniques yet applied in Western Australia. Apart from the many rabbits destroyed in the warrens during ripping operations, it was found that the destruction of their harbourage left the surviving rabbits an easy prey to foxes and other natural enemies, besides depriving them of snug breeding quarters.
