Rabbits tend to inhabit grassland/meadows and heaths,
woodland and open areas such as sand dunes. They are common in
parks, on golf courses and railway embankments, and in gardens
where they burrow under trees and sheds. The burrow systems are
known as "warrens" and can reach great size. Where numbers
are fewer, single burrows can occur, but these do not cause as
many problems to humans as the larger warren systems.
Rabbit Management & Legislation

Agriculture Act 1947 and The
Pests Act 1954
These acts state:
- One may be required to destroy or remove scrub
to prevent rabbit harbourage and reduce their spread.
- Rabbit Clearance Order No 148 1972 makes the
whole of England and Wales a rabbit clearance area.
- Owners have a continuing
obligation to control rabbits living on their land

within a rabbit clearance area, they can use any legal method
