Annamite Striped Rabbit

There are no known adverse effects of Annamite striped rabbits on humans, though there have been reports by local villagers of the rabbit as a pest of rice fields.

There are no known adverse effects of Annamite striped rabbits on humans, though there have been reports by local villagers of the rabbit as a pest of rice fields in western Khammouan province, Lao PDR.

These reports were based upon the presentation of an image of the rabbit to local villagers and a positive response from the villagers that the animal was present in their area. However, other independent evidence indicates that identification of animal images (including mammals as distinctive as the tiger (Panthera tigris) and the saola (Pseudoryx nghetinhensis)) by local villagers is often not reliable.
