Humanely dealing with pests this winter.

Kylie Klein Nixon Reporter from Homed

Have you ever had a pest problem? I used to have a pet rat. They are smart, affectionate, clever little things. I'd never want to cause one unnecessary pain or suffering, which is why we've chosen to manage pests in our home with traps.

I'd never want to cause one unnecessary pain or suffering, which is why we've chosen to manage pests in our home with traps. It's not ideal, but it's better - and safer - than poison. I've done a little research on humane, effective vermin control during the wet months, when they like to come in from the cold. Take a look:

Myself and my boys have been trying to catch it to provide company for our lady open range rabbit, yuanyuan. We found out an hour ago that late last week a lady (maybe called Elizabeth) caught the rabbit and rang the RSPCA, We have looked on their site and the lostpets site that they list lost and found animals on but no sign of aforementioned rabbit. The rabbit is small, light brown all over with white flashings on its behind and its right ear is ripped and a small part dangles off.

Please contact me if you know anything about this rabbit.
