Burning Bunnies in Sweden
OCTOBER 13, 2009
The targeted rabbits are the unwanted inhabitants of capital Stockholm's parks, which are culled to protect the shrubs and trees which they gorge on. In Sweden, the way they deal with rabbit problems is to shoot them and burn them for fuel. Many of them are domestic pets released by uncaring owners which then go on to breed. Six thousand were killed last year, frozen and their cadavers sent to a special heating plant in Karlskoga, central Sweden.
