The Rabbit is found throughout most of Western Europe and was first introduced by the Normans as a food and clothing source, these days it can be found almost any ware from Golf Courses to Roundabouts on busy roads.

 

They breed from January to July, females born in the early part of the year can start to breed at 3-4 months the gestation period is 28-30 days with an average of 5 young per litter and females produce 4-5 litters a year- hence Rabbits legendary powers of reproduction, a small number can soon escalate into an infestation in a short period of time.

They can also undermine embankments and structures with their burrowing, gardeners know all too well the destruction that can take place in domestic gardens and allotments.
