The 154-year-old cemetery was peppered by dozens of rabbit holes, some near graves, when the Otago Daily Times visited the site yesterday.
The Central Otago District Council administers and maintains the cemetery on Springvale Rd.
A resident made a complaint to the Central Otago District Council in early 2018 when the site was pockmarked with large rabbit holes going into graves, some about 15cm in diameter.
Council engaged a contractor to fill in the holes and said rabbit control work would be ''routinely undertaken at Clyde'' as part of council work at the cemetery.
Council parks and recreation manager Gordon Bailey said pest contractors had visited the site twice over the past 12 months.
''Clyde cemetery has regular checks by council's maintenance contractors who maintain the lawns and empty the litter bins.''
When asked whether the rabbit situation at the cemetery had been improving, Mr Bailey said rabbits were still an issue within the cemetery, as the pest animals were in ''most reserve areas''.
Mr Bailey said no complaints had been received by council this year.
However there had been some "informal comments" about rabbits at the cemetery, he said.
''A further pest contractor visit is planned in the near future,'' he said.
