Floods, Rabbits, and Snakes. [Newspaper Article] — Werriwa Times and Goulburn District News — 6 November 1901
Floods, Rabbits, and Snakes. Amiury, Monday.—The Murray flood Is now receding very quickly. Upper Murray resi dents report that the flood was the highest for !•> years, and also that thousands of acres of crass land have been temporarily ruined by tlie flood waters. At Cumberootid a good deal of damage was done in tobacco planta tions and other cropped land. Thousands of rabbits, were Killed with slicks on the islands, and Innumerable others droivned In burrows. Usually In flood-time on the Upper Murray there is a great slaughter of- snakes, but this time very Tew were seen. Mr. J. J. Hore, of Cuinberoona station, is of opinion that that is due to the reptiles being almost decimated through eating phospliorised pollard, laid for rabbits. Many snakes have been opened lately, and phospliorised pollard has ;been discovered in them. The fact that the flood did not rise so high as was anticipated at Albury was due to the less heavy downpour in the watersheds of the Mltta Mitta and Kic...
