Riverina rabbit numbers explode

Agricultural enterprises are losing thousands of dollars of production due to rabbits in the NSW Riverina.

Local Land Services officers are encouraging neighbouring properties to work together with coordinated programs of baiting followed by warren ripping for sustained control.

Landholders are also engaging professional shooters, who are taking more than 1,000 rabbits per night. For more information, see ABC News, here.
