Telemetry was used to determine the patterns of mortality of rabbits, Oryctolagus cuniculus (L.), day by day following laying of poisoned bait in the field. Four poisoning methods were studied: 'conventional' 1080 (sodium monofluoroacetate) in oat bait, 'conventional' 1080 in carrot bait, pindone (2-pivalyl-1,3-indandione) in oat bait, and 'one-shot' 1080 in oat bait. Three strengths of one-shot 1080 (0.25%, 1%, and 4%) were compared. The relative merits of the various poisoning techniques are discussed.
