As I am absolutely against hunting in any form I have fenced in our land so nobody can shoot here.apart from that the law says that one can only shoot with their back to a dwelling and there must always be a distance of 150 m.Don't worry before we were enclosed 2 hunters came on our land with shotguns ,my husband chased them of with a cricketbat and I can tell you they would have won the 400 m straight had they baan in the olympics.use your rights as every body here in spain.

If you're a rabbit lover you can come and collect all mine free of charge (you'll need a big truck).

the advantage of fencing in your property is what is outside stays outside and what is inside stays inside.Simple.

Why would they release rabbits when there are millions of the little blighters around already ?


Funny to hear there are so many rabbits in your area. At our place (el pinell de brai) there is hardly a rabbit left. When we came here in 2006 we did see rabbits a few times every week, but now we see more mountaingoats then rabbits. Don't know what happend but it is not because of the hunting, there are not that much hunters overhere.

If I could afford to fence off four hectares I would.

El Alto,  I don't know if altitude makes a difference.  Depending on exactly where you live, you're probably at least 100m higher up than us and possibly quite a bit more.  Round here the rabbit population often reaches officially classified plague proportions.  Talking of fencing, it cost me a fortune and a lot of labour just to fence off my veg patch to protect from bunnies.

If the important part (your veg.part) is already fenced in ,what is your problem? rabbits do not climb trees so they won't eat your olives.may be little by little you can even fence  a little bit more so you won't even se them anymore.
Live and let live.

I'm already working on the flower beds.  I believe in live and let live but rabbits are vermin.

Actually, you say they don't climb trees but they do chew the bark and I have lost a lot of young olive trees because of this and the locals have to spend a lot of time and money protecting their olive and citrus trees and their other crops.

Maybe the goats have eaten the vegetation the rabbits would normally feed on. Goats destroy the land.

Ditto ten hectares with a road into Els Ports running through it.  We have two hunting dogs and they keep the rabbit population down but we still see at least one live one every day.  They aren't exactly an endangered species and they taste really good.
