"In 1882 rabbits were again introduced and the story is almost parallel

with the foregoing. They multiplied and became such a nuisance that in 1999,

seven cats were brought from Halifax and in 1890, thirty more. hile the 
cats were wintering and fattening on the rabbits, seven red foxes were 
brought from the mainland and in a single season they made an end of all
the 
rabbits and the cats."
