Invasion: killer rabbits and other invasive species
The vast expanses of dead land. Millions dead and destitute. These are not the consequences of a supervolcano eruption - just rabbits. Everybody knows where the road paved even with good intentions leads: brought to Australia for breeding like in good old England ”, they quickly turned into a natural disaster.
Domesticated rabbits came to Australia and the neighboring islands in early 1788 - along with the first European settlers. People took aboard familiar pets to provide themselves with provisions along the way and for the first time living on a new continent. According to the census held at the end of the same year, the colony consisted of a little more than a thousand white Australians, as well as 29 sheep, 74 pigs, 7 horses and cows each, and 6 rabbits.
