Place a rabbit-proof fence around the dojo of your chosing, then use rainbows painted on the sidewalk to lure them where you want them to go?

Google "Alexandra Easter Bunny" - the annual bunny and possum cull... IIRC it was about 25,000 at the 2010 event. In 2 days.

Nah, there was a bounty on possum hides but now it's mainly the hair - gets woven in with merino wool for VERY warm garments. When I was last in NZ, possum hair was fetching about $120NZ/kg, or about 15-16 possums worth of hair...
Most often the carcasses of the bunnies are just left there - edible, but there are SO many...

And there's no intent here to sleight O-Sensei with the already-hijacked thread.
