Animal Planet video: Outback Rabbit Invasion
See, before there were cane toads, there was another introduction that went haywire. So when Raquel Dexter told the sugar moguls of the world that cane toads were just the thing at the big sugar conference, Australia should have politely thanked her, and gone home. Why? Because bunnies have been ravaging the outback for over 150 years now, that’s why.
Yes, bunnies. See, you know that expression fuck like bunnies? They do, they really, really do. You do the math.
Lottttttts of bunnies. European bunnies, that do not belong any more than Hawaiian cane toads.
That was 1787. There was a secondary release in 1859, and hoppity hop, the Easter Bunny wasn’t so damn cute any more:
