The A.C.T. Government will this week begin to tackle the plague of rabbits on City Hill.
The operation begins today and will run for atleast the next 10 days.
Gas and air gun pellets will be used – to try to bring-down the population in the centre of Canberra.
According to the government’s manager for City Presentation Daniel Iglesias – rabbits were an officially designated “pest” and have already damaged the pine trees on city Hill.
Control operations will be carried out at night and have been designed to maintain rabbit populations below a set density
