Rabbits Invade South Africa

South Africa's Robben Island Museum will close from November 1st-16th so authorities can cull rabbits!

The rabbit population has become so prolific that it threatens the fauna on the rest of the island and many must be killed to cull it. Of course, the biggest threat is to the island's vegetation.

After the current population has been curbed, a sterilization program will be implemented to prevent future population explosions.
