To snare rabbits one must get snare wire and a bit of stick. Make a loop at one end of the wire. Fasten the other end to a piece of stick. Put the stick in ground near the burrow and the loop of the wire in the run that the rabbit has, from one burrow to an other. When a rabbit is running from one burrow to an other he keeps his head down and as he runs along he goes in in the loop and his is snared.
