Rabbit and hare control at Mulligans Flat

MULLIGANS Flat Woodland Sanctuary will experience temporary closures as part of the program to control populations of rabbits and hares this Spring.

Though foxes and cats have been removed as a result of previous control programs, rabbit and hare populations have been harder to reduce. The latest program is a follow up to the recent release of the RHD virus.

Since the program involves shooting and fumigation the Sanctuary will be closed each night on a Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday between 7pm and 8am from Monday September 8 to Wednesday November 19.

Signs and notices, as well as locked gates to the Sanctuary will alert people to the closure and prevent access.
