The rabbits got so thick, yeah, we had rabbit drives . . . somebody organized it and we made a big circle, then we’d close in on ‘em, had a big pen out in the middle and boy, the jack rabbits, they squealed. One time, just south of the river, we had a drive. We circled clear around about four miles; we walked about two miles. And never let ‘em go by and drove ‘em into that pen, and people got in there with clubs, and clubbed ‘em to death. And then they got some money out of the rabbits. They had to do something with the rabbits eating the crops, they’d just eat it down to nothin’. There were so many . . . And it helped out.
