re: Akubra now using European rabbits to make their hats. http://finance.ninemsn.com.au/newsbusiness/9006273/katter-hopping-mad-over-akubra-cost-cuts THIS explains everything!! We wondered why we suddenly had so many bunnies in our yard. They should be hats NOT eating everything in our yard. Just another reason why you should never mess with nature, it messes up all the balance. BUT . . . in related news . . . next time hubby needs a new hat I will simply present him with one of the dead bunnies from our yard and he can make his own hat. Everyone should have little projects to do in their old age.
