Last year, we posted about the feral rabbit population living under the Sydney Harbour Bridge. The group of bunnies ended up there after a few domestic rabbits who either escaped or were dumped started breeding.
Now, two groups are working towards a solution to this feral population boom. Sydney Harbour Foreshore Authority are trapping the rabbits and finding them homes after Sydney University Veterinary Teaching Hospital spays/neuters and vaccinates them.
According to Dr. Deepa Gopinath, senior surgical teaching registrar at Sydney University Veterinary Teaching Hospital, “The desexing of the Dawes Point Park bunnies has been invaluable for our students as they experience hands-on surgery and it has been great to be actively involved in this very necessary community welfare project.”
