I lived on the Isle of canna in the early 70s and was well aware of the rabbit problem in my job as the cook at Canna house.
John campbell introduced myxamytosis which worked for a while but was tragic to see all these dead and distorted animals.
May I suggest to the Scottish national trust that a good business can come from these millions of rabbits. Trap Shoot and send the meat to the mainland for consumption then use the skins as we have in new Zealand with the possumm which cant be eaten but the furs have been used in many ways and is now a luxury item and exported worldwide in fashion, throws, gloves socks etc. A;lso this industry could give work to many even if workers need to come from the mainland students etc please contact helens_cushions@hotmail.com. Please advise the national trust of my comments. John Campbell would approve of this idea. regards helen ewington
