THE FRONT LAWN GANG

THE FRONT LAWN GANG
A few of the wild life that seem to have decided that I'm an easy touch here in New Zealand.
The wild rabbits just about live on my front lawn now and the ducks are not afraid to call in for their share, this one closing in for the kill did in fact just shoulder the rabbits out of the way to get at the pellets.

Cute!. Sadly no feral rabbits where I live, well that's what the State Government says, and they have a $30,000 penalty for keeping any type of rabbits as pets.

That's a helluva fine to have a rabbit!
The rabbits and duck in this picture are not pets, they just think they are.
They are actually wild but I seem to have gained their trust.
When you think of all the dangerous creatures you have in your Australia the poor old rabbits do seem to have a raw deal there, although I do realise of course what a menace they are to your country.
Here in New Zealand deer are considered a pest and the opossum is a real menace to our trees.
I believe also that Americans think that an opossum is a small brown, long and flat animal that lives on New Zealand roads.
Maybe that is only American tourists to new Zealand who think that! (Only a joke)

The NZ opossums are Australian possums thriving in a foreign environment. They have value to some among the indigenous here as a source of pelts to make coats. Oz ones can't be 'harvested' as they are a protected native species.

Here in the 'Shaky Isles' they are just a pest that costs the country millions of dollars a year.
