Summary: This photograph, taken by C. A. Smith near Liberal, Kansas, depicts the crowds preparing to round up jack rabbits who had been devastating what little crops had managed to survive through the drought. One rabbit could do $10 worth of damage to a field in only one week. No guns were allowed, only clubs or canes; nevertheless between 10,000 and 20,000 rabbits were killed during this drive.
