Controversy is raging about who's going to pay for the eradication of rabbits from Macquarie Island, news reports state. A Macquarie Island researcher is concerned that delays in funding a rabbit eradication program are leading to more environmental damage. University of Tasmania researcher Jenny Scott says landslides are becoming more common on the island due to erosion caused by more than 100,000 feral rabbits. Now, get this for stupidity. At a time when governments are trying to provide hospitals, schools, police and some sort of assistance in mental health, this worthy project is going to cost $24 million dollars . That's $240 PER RABBIT. Hell, I'll go down there with a .22 and do it if they'll pay me 24 mill!!!!!!!!!!
