      I can confirm that rabbits are taking over the Jersey Shore. I started seeing them in my yard and all over the neighborhood this year. I don't mind them at all but I could see how they'd be annoying if you were growing food or flowers. The thought of endless "Hey, I saw a rabbit." phone calls to authorities is hilarious. The Rabbit Outbreak is a great article that explores what a unique place rabbits hold in our culture: beloved pet, wild animal, nuisance and food all at once.

      Edit: Ha, just noticed this article was from 2017! Guess it took them a few years to spread up north.
