The great New Zealand bunny hunt:
More than 12,000 rabbits have been culled in central Otago over the weekend during Alexandra's annual Great Easter Bunny Hunt.

The winning team, the Hare Raising Mutineers, bagged more than 1,400 rabbits over two days, beating last year's total by about 300.

Landowners in New Zealand's premier farming region of Canterbury have been given legal notice this season to cut rabbit numbers.

To drive that message home, bunny burgers and sausages were given away at a local agricultural show this weekend.
