The following paper on the rabbit nuisance, sent to the secretary by Mr. John Bisdee, of Hutton Park, was read at the August meeting of the Society:— The destruction of rabbits is now, I believe, generally admitted to have become absolutely necessary, and from my own experience I have no hesitation in saying that had not some means been found of destroying them, one more year — increasing at the rate they have been—would have ruined every agricultural form near where rabbits were numerous, and stock of all kinds must have starved. I have therefore much pleasure in giving any information that will assist fellow-sufferers in getting rid of one of the worst evils the landholder ever had to contend with.
