Non-native feral rabbit populations have popped up in Canmore, Calgary and Edmonton. (Helen Pike/CBC - image credit)It could be the end of Canmore's feral rabbit saga. The province doesn't currently encourage re-homing feral rabbits; it encourages trapping them and putting them down. Canmore's feral rabbit problem started when pets were released in the 1980s. Officials decided something needed to be done about a bunny boom in 2011 — estimating the population had doubled from 1,000 to 2,000 feral rabbits.
