The rabbit has damaged the Australian environment and is also a major pest to farmers. Some estimates put the number of rabbits in Australia at over 200 million. Wild rabbits were introduced by Thomas Austin of Barwon Park, Winchelsea in Victoria. In 1859, Austin imported 24 rabbits from England and released them on his property for sport hunting. Today there are over 200 million of them. See: http://www.ozramp.net.au/~senani/aniausti.htm
