Silver Grey Rabbits originated in California and were released at various sites within New Zealand as early as the 1830s. While initially they were hunted for food and sport, today they are sought after for their fur which is used to make clothing. Rabbits are very adaptable and have become plagues in many places in New Zealand as they destroy farm lands and vegetation.
