Bunnies vs Fuel: Most Bizarre Biofuels Story of the Year

| July 28, 2010

Sweden’s got a common problem: too many bunnies, breeding like, well, rabbits. Sweden’s got an unusual solution, trap ‘em, kill ‘em, and burn ‘em to generate power.

A perfect ecologically pure power source for plug-in electrics…oh, not really. Eew.  We profiled the common problem and the icky solution in this story from last October.

Apparently, Stockholm, which has an overstock of stray, wild rabbits that are destroying local parks, authorized a culling operation, and the killed bunnies were shipped for processing. The Stockholm facility is also incinerating dead cats, cows, deer and horses, according to the report. Yikes.

It remains right up there with 2008-09′s cosmetic surgeon who turned liposuction fat into biodiesel as among the strangest biofuels stories ever recorded.
