A submission from Foundation for Rabbit-Free Australia was one of over hundred received by the Standing Committee on the Environment and Energy as part of its ‘Inquiry into the problem of feral and domestic cats in Australia’. The issue was referred to the House of Representatives committee by the Minister for the Environment, the Hon Sussan Ley MP.
The Foundation pointed out that rabbit control was one the most effective means to control feral cats and contain the harm they cause to many native animals. It also encouraged support for on-ground rabbit control and investments into bio-controls for rabbits as part of any programs to control feral cats.
