A housing development is under attack in North Dakota.
Rabbits have taken over a community in North Dakota. This development is the new breeding ground for these voracious plant eaters.
Fargo, North Dakota has had an influx in the jackrabbit population and over 50 animals have been counted. The jack rabbits appeared two or three months ago and the human population of this new development were thrilled to see them in their yards. Not so anymore.
The rabbits have become a nuisance, eating bushes and trees and leaving droppings everywhere. Jackrabbit females can possibly have two to four litters each year. Each litter can have anywhere from one to nine offspring each. They are prolific.
Here is a textbook lesson on urban sprawl that is happening across the nation. This new housing development was built in the jack rabbits habitat and they have moved back in to survive. Human and jack rabbit interaction has become a conflict.
Fargo, North Dakota reportedly has no ordinance to address the rabbit problem.
