The City of Airdrie Parks department needs your help. 

The department is asking for your help in identifying problem areas in the city with high feral domestic-breed rabbits. 

Cheryl Lowe, Natural Area Technician with the City of Airdrie says the city is trying to identify the heaviest populations.

"We're looking for information about neighbourhoods in which wild, non-native rabbits are prolific".

The city is asking you to email them if you have seen these rabbits in your area.

Feral domestic-breed rabbits are a problem because they breed every 31 days and produce six to eight rabbits per litter. This means Feral domestic-breed rabbits could possibly produce seventy to eighty rabbits a year. 

A high rabbit population attracts predatorial animals such as coyotes. 

An infestation of feral domestic-breed rabbits can also ruin property, cause damage and death to trees and they can also spread disease.
