Yes, rabbits were introduced to Australia & are now considered a pest. They're sold in pet shops though - where's the logic one might ask? Cane toads were also imported into Australia, & are outsmarting us. And the innocent cute little goldfish found in bowls on dining room buffets, have just been listed as a nuisance in our inland waterways - people no longer wanting them as pets let them go in the river, now they're eating out populations of fish native to our rivers.

There was one animal that was introduced to Australia, but I can't remember for sure which animal...probably rabbits. Anyways, they are causing a lot of problems to the vegetation etc.

Not just non-native, but a pretty aggressive plant..lots of examples of non-native plants and critters causing problems...kudzu, snake-head, nutria, razor-clams...some introduced to help solve a problem, then became a problem..others, like razor clams, introduced by accident...

That's not useless information. Could it be banned because it's non-native, thus the authorities would be concerned about pampass grass would overtake/kill native plants?

In San Diego County or was it The Town of Apple Valley? Either or, this grass has been outlawed. Non-Native reasons I guess. I was trying to get some plans approved for a project and Pampass was on the list of things not allowed for the landscape. I just thought I'd share that little bit of useless information.
