I was worried about the first step in the chain, more and more raccoons.
Thad didn't happen.  We could have used more hawks and owls, though, for the
nocturnal, burrowing, garden-thieving varmints.

I know somebody who did something similar.  A retired farmer's wife began  
keeping rabbits.  Her pet rabbit population exploded, as rabbits will do.   
Then they escaped.

Cannot tell you what neighgor farmers thought of that.  It was not  
pleasant.  In many regards it was like a plague of locusts.

Then the coy dog populaiton exploded, and the hawk population went up.

No more bunnies.  Nobody is losing sleep over that.
