Mouse and rabbits among INNS

I was surprised to see rabbits and other species I associate with Britain named in an article in the Guardian – – about ‘invasive non-native species’ (inns). A report published today says that inns cost the British economy £1.7 billion every year.

My surprise simulated me to Google on the subject and I found this useful piece in the Telegraph on regarding inns. At the end of the article there is a list on when some inns first arrived in the UK – rabbits were first brought to Britain by the Romans but they were not established in the wild until the mid to late 12th Century.
