Hunting for chocolate eggs is popular Easter event, but in New Zealand it was bunnies in the firing line at an annual rabbit-shooting event in one district where they are regarded as pests.Ten thousand rabbits were shot by more than 300 hunters in 27 teams during the 24-hour "bunny hunt", which began on Good Friday. This year, the winning team, "Down South", shot 889 rabbits, beating "Hopper Stoppers" with 755 .Ferreira said in the past a few rabbits would have been taken home to eat, but that no longer happened as younger sport shooters were less interested in eating game.
