Volunteers deal with a rabbit problem.

Some areas find themselves with large populations of feral rabbits that were previously domesticated. Pacific City, OR used to have this issue; when we started visiting the area about 14 years ago, the town was overrun with adorable bunnies of all domesticated stripe. (Development and control since then have curbed the populations.) While they may look cute, there's a problem for the buns -- who often suffer from a variety of problems -- and the people they live around.

Long Beach City College had such a problem... and here's a great article on what volunteers are doing to combat it.

The problem isn't new or rare, either; My House Rabbit's blog talked about a Canadian instance of this issue some time ago.
