Although rabbits did not become established in Western Australia until much later, the Western Australian government had legislated to make land managers responsible for rabbit control as early as 1883. At the same time as these Acts were being introduced a thriving trade had developed in rabbit carcasses and skins, and a new occupation was born – the rabbiter, who trapped rabbits for the bonuses, and later for the meat and skins. Initially the rabbiters made fortunes from bonus payments (Rolls, 1984), and later planned their trapping so as not to destroy their resource, by siting their traps in such a way as to take bucks preferentially and moving on after they had harvested about 40% of the population.

In the immediate post-Second World War period it concentrated on research related to primary industry, and its officers were responsible for all Australian laboratory and field studies of myxomatosis between 1937 and 1950, and for most of the fieldwork after 1950. 4Rabbit Calicivirus Disease Project.
