There are imported and escaped rabbits in a few places in the south like around Helsinki. But not generally no, it is not a native. We had a kind of rabbit problem but a virus decimated the population 2 years ago and it has not gone up yet.

The bigger birds of prey and foxes and stray cats are having a feast with them. I don't think they would be able to spread around much more, the winter is also the big limiting factor.

I meant last hijack from me lol

I have squirrel and mole trap lines out atm but I could easily add rabbit fox or anything else that's legal to trap.
Are the Mole trap version still the weird wide headed scissor kina thing you stick in the Loose soil?

Didn't know if you used Connibears or similar.

Yeah I prefer the large scissor type traps for moles.
Connibears tend to be larger than a mole trap needs to be, they only need to open as wide as a mole run.
Otherwise fen traps or live catch cage traps are my go to.
