The center of the Swedish capital is being plagued by thousands of rabbits, some of them wild and some of them stray pets, and 3,000 have been culled this year, down from 6,000 in 2008, Tommy Tuvunger, who hunts rodents for the Stockholm city administration, told SPIEGEL ONLINE.
“We are shooting rabbits in Stockholm center, they are a very big problem,” said Tuvunger. The rabbits are eating their way through the city’s central parks. “Once culled, the rabbits are frozen and when we have enough; a contractor comes and takes them away. “
