He says "My plan is to set traps about the warren you intend to work upon, and having caught a few. rabbits make them the agency for the destruction of their fellows. I tie around the neck of the rabbit one or two plugs of dynamite, with a detonator, and about six inches of fuse fastened to the plug, just the same as is used in mining.

My experience has been that the burrows that I have blown up the rabbits never go back to them. The plan is inex pensive, and 10 shots will cost about 8d, and a great- lot of burrow3 ca...
