A little while ago a few of these stickers turned up in our neighbourhood, at the corner of Richardson Street and Lygon Street. Last week I noticed that they had all been removed, but just like real rabbits another one turned up again soon after.
Rabbits are well known for breeding quickly, taking over and depleting resources. At our learning circle on Monday night we had a look at John Marsden and Shaun Tan’s picture book The Rabbits, which depicts the colonisation of this land as an arrival of rabbits.
Maybe rabbits are a kind of totem for colonists?
