Pet Rabbits – the most common illegal pet

The rabbit is Australia’s most destructive introduced pest. Wild rabbits cause more than $600 million damage every year. They cause severe land degradation and soil erosion. Wild rabbits threaten the survival of many rare and endangered species of native wildlife.
The keeping of rabbits as pets is strongly opposed by many rural landholders whose livelihood is threatened by wild rabbit plagues.
