Abstract

(1) A simple method for the efficient capture of a localized population of wild rabbits (Oryctolagus cuniculus (L.)) living in warrens separated from their feeding grounds by a fence line is described. (2) Gill nets 400 m long, strung on numbered fence posts, are simultaneously lowered by a simple trip mechanism after the rabbits had grazed for several hours.
