The Island of Canna one of the Hebridean islands spent £600,000 solving it’s rat problem nearly four ago. Since then the island which had been plagued by rats has a new problem. The rats are long gone but they now appear to have a rabbit problem. It seems that the lack of rats has created a gap in the food chain and with no rats to keep the rabbit population down, they are becoming something of a problem. There are now thousands of rabbits devastating local crops and and even damaging local monuments. The islands only restaurant has started putting rabbit on the menu in an effort to take advantage of the situation but the rabbit problem does not appear to be under control. It’s clear here that there are consequences to messing with the local populations of animals but at least rabbits are tasty, perhaps they should eat a few more of them.
