"A great many people now reading and writing would be better employed keeping rabbits."
- Dame Edith Sitwell

Bunnies: 4

Wallace and Gromit: 0

Notes from the field: A twilight setting after a meal of mushrooms,Thai spinach soup and Malbec. One bunny spotted in the bush. Encouragement. Early morning rise, three snares untouched, one trampled. Bunnies galore. Taunting. Analysis: Snares too large? Settings along the fence should be positioned on the return run, not the out? Possibly too close to the ground--need to give room for hops?

"'Animals don't behave like men,' he said. 'If they have to fight, they fight; and if they have to kill they kill. But they don't sit down and set their wits to work to devise ways of spoiling other creatures' lives and hurting them. They have dignity and animality.'"- Richard Adams, Watership Down
