Victorian illustration to download showing rabbits being caught in netting suspended between posts. The netting prevents them from escaping to their burrows in a rabbit warren among large trees. Men with sticks advance on the rabbits. This scene was sketched in Epping Forest where rabbits were caught for the London markets. It was not uncommon to net about 150 rabbits in one morning.
