Auckland Council is planning to put a regular canine guest in Auckland Domain, the city’s oldest park, with the first rabbit-hunting dog scheduled to visit in early August, NZ Herald reports. According to Auckland Council, pet owners dumping the animals has most likely created the rabbit overpopulation. David Stejskal, the council’s Regional Arborists and Ecological Manager, said the hunting dog will visit about once every three months. An anticoagulant bait will also be deployed.
