Wabbit Hunting

Swedes with shovels, stoking the furnaces with fuzzy "fuel", I wish I could see it:

The bodies of thousands of rabbits culled every year from the parks in Stockholm’s Kungsholmen neighbourhood are being used to fuel a heating plant in central Sweden.

My first vision was of flaming hossenfeffers escaping into the surrounding suburbs and burning them to ash. But not to worry:
Animal control authorities employ a special rifle to shoot the excess rabbits, with most of the culling taking place at dawn when the animals peek out from their holes.

When they peek out? Poor little tame rabbits? Peta must be going nuts.
