BTN – Rabbit restriction

This BTN was about the ban in Queensland on having a pet rabbit. Here is what I learnt:

If you are caught with a rabbit in Queensland you could have to pay a 44,000 dollar fine. Another thing I learnt was that when they tried to get rid of rabbit for good they used two viruses called myxomatosis and calicivirus, they wiped out millions of rabbits but didn’t manage to kill all of them. Finally I learnt that the European settlers brought them here.

I understood that lots of people want to save rabbits because they believe that they are very cute. I also understand that a lot of people think different things.

A question I had was; what are the other laws in different countries?
