BLACK RABBITS

Recommended Posts

I  went to a field yesterday for a look round  and i saw over 20 Black Rabbits  as well as the normal kind  , i went back this morning with a camera to see if i could get a picture an though i saw 10  the  were  very skittish all i have to do now is finding a way of catching them  because the job will be much harder than it looks

I'd shoot them all before they grow up and start rioting looting and mugging everybody.

The rare time I've seen black rabbits when ferreting the dogs seemed to get more excited about catching them and put in extra effort,the racist mutts,lol.

The Field  is L shaped with a total length of 600 yards by 45 width with three  sides  walled ,  there are major  well lit roads either side , there are no holes to be seen  as the Rabbits run straight into the walls , there are no runs visible  as yet  and i dont want to make  any until i see a little traffic .  ....... over to you  lot ??????

I assume the walls themselves are where the rabbits are living and they are unferretable? I don’t have any walls in my neck of the woods so they are all new to me!
