Arrrrrr, my personal pet peeve, lawn chemicals. I've had so many skin and respiratory problems since moving here to a suburb with big yards and
people and the county spraying crap all over every patch of grass that exists. God forbid a lawn should have clover in it instead of perfectly
uniform grass blades. I use a lawn care company, too, only because we have no place to stow a lawn mower big enough for our lawn. But they only cut
the lawn. No chemicals on my property! I'm fortunate our HOA isn't too picky.
I can't necessarily blame ignorant homeowners. I read the homeowners association documents of different neighborhoods around here before I settled
into my house and learned that a lot of neighborhoods forbid homeowners from planting gardens, you can't even plant a flower that is not on their
approved list. You are required by regulations to maintain a pure grass lawn. It takes chemicals to do this.
As for the rabbits, if they are not showing signs of trauma or injury it sounds like it can't be the myxomatosis. That disease looks like it leaves
visible signs. But the theory of an earth quake...not sure how an earthquake in the future can kill rabbits now. Unless there is a release of gas
Also, if there are so many rabbits around that some localities actually imported myxomatosis to purposely infect their rabbits, (which i think is
cruel and monstrous and wasteful) why aren't we doing ad campaigns to eat more rabbits? Or export them to people who are starving. Here on ATS we are
always worried about famine around the corner, yet we have all these rabbits nobody wants running around. They are as edible as beef or chicken, are
they not? We need to be less finicky and more resourceful if we are to survive.
