A town council has voted against plans to gas thousands of rabbits being blamed for damaging sports pitches.
Welshpool said it had tried to combat the problem at Maesydre playing fields, but the population was out of control.
Councillors met on Wednesday evening to vote on whether to gas the animals or spread a garlic repellent on the land.
The council said it would instead employ a professional company to tackle the problem and would ask Powys council to also take action on adjoining land.
