Most Ecological Lawnmower is a Rabbit Lawnmower

These days the environment conservancy awareness is at the rise. More and more ways to go green appear worldwide, replacing the traditional but nature unfriendly methods of doing things with more greener ones. Not to miss that, one Russian inventor reportedly started a production of the most green lawnmowers one can imagine. The idea was to build a large size mobile rabbit cage without the flooring inside. It could fit enough rabbits and cover some part of the
lawn for a few hours while rabbits eat. Then in a few hours its being moved to another neighbor spot and then stays there for a few hours more while rabbits finnish all the grass around.

Also no annoying noise is being heard while it works.

Thus, they often added excessive Nazi atrocities, terrible ruins and looting to fill papers with horrifying images. However we do not have to exclude that such atrocities and other terrific events could
really happen, it was just difficult to catch them with a camera due to their spontaneity. Photographers were rarely in a right time and in a right place. It's today when everyone has a cameraphone we can shoot everything we see. Photo manipulations as an instrument of propaganda is claimed to be natural.
