Landcare and the Baw Baw Shire Council have worked with Toorongo Court, Moores Road and Buntine Drive residents since July last year to reduce rabbit numbers.

As part of the removal program residents were taught how to destroy burrows and warrens, remove low-lying vegetation, identify rabbit hiding places and how to use traps and lures.

A baiting program also took place, involving the use of liquid Pindone-treated carrots.

Residents who last year reported seeing rabbits at their door in the morning now report seeing no rabbits at all.
