The members of the experimental design workgroup would like to receive more data on the reaction of rabbits to the laser with the green light, Volterra is doing trials with the handheld laser with farmers in the surroundings of their office in Palencia. Farmer Enrique in Soto de Cerrato and Venta de Baños is almost desperate because the rabbits are destroying the irrigated crops this year. Due to the drought last autumn and winter, the animals have no other place to eat than on cropland.
We used the car and its lights to get as close as possible to the rabbits in the fields. Since this was done very carefully only very few rabbits were scared away by the car. From the car it was easy to reach the direct surroundings of the animals. As seen in previous sessions, only very few saw the laser and reacted to it running away but most of them frosted when the laser approached. We filled in the log forms prepared by BCG to enable the workgroup to give comments in the next meeting by skype.
