Rabbits are a pray animals (r/K selection theory) and are predated on by foxes, hawks etc and of course humans so it’s a good thing to keep their numbers down otherwise they can be very destructive to the environment.

I love them … used to have them as a lad and go ferreting and had a real campion hob called Smoky. Unfortunately as an adult I seemed to have developed an allergy to the smell and it gives me a terrible headache. A shame as we did try to rehome a pair and they even got on with our German Shepherd.

No way, I've never heard of that. I have eczema, so allergic to loads of animals, but these are hypoallegernic. Real shame for you mate!
