Thread: Rabbits kill people ?

  1. #1

    Rabbits kill people ?

    Dear hunters, I recently heard that rabbits account for a nearly 5% (please let me know if this percentage is incorrect) responsibility for all crop damage / loss taken as an average figure across the UK. Given that there is a world food shortage and that we export allot of our grain etc overseas to help people who are suffering the effects of famine, usually in war torn countries, could it be that one could almost directly attribute the fury blob as being murderer of humans ? Does anyone have any statistics or thoughts on this ?

    Regards, Olaf

    Yes, people need to balance this out by eating more rabbits!
    Hey presto, less rabbits and more food!

    In all seriousness mate, I see that this is the way things are going!
    The cost of venison and other game used to be really expensive, (and probably still is in supermarkets),
    but the continual rising cost of farmed meats has now begun to put game into the reach of the average persons pockets when sourced locally. It used to be cost effective to drive to the nearest supermarket to buy stuff, but the cost of fuel now means that it is cheaper to use the local farm shop for those out of town. I've seen an increase in local farm shops around here recently, and as a registered food business myself, the demand for game seems to be on the increase!

    It's when you see it doing press ups in the corner you have got to worry.

    You sure about that? I thought we were a net importer of cereals. Got a source for your information?

    The world population has just broken the 7 Billion mark.

    Thats maybe why there are some hungry mouths.
