The issue of rampant rabbits continues to raise its furry head at University of Victoria. The campus is overrun with feral rabbits and since last September the university has been running a public awareness campaign asking people not to feed the unwanted intruders nor harass them. But the university got into a bit of hot water when the environmental students’ newsletter ran an article on how to kill, skin and cook the errant bunnies, raising the ire of the SPCA and others. The newsletter editor, Heike Lettrari, emphasized the article was tongue-in-cheek, adding that the aim was to provoke discussion on how to deal with the unwanted animals, most of which are descendants of abandoned pets.
