If memory serves, Australia introduced rabbits and, with no natural enemies , they reproduced like...well...rabbits. Was a major ecological disaster.
It's not just rabbits.

The latest Australian pest is the cane toad. It was deliberately introduced to control the cane beetle, which hitched a ride when sugar cane was imported from Hawaii. I'm reminded of the children's song about the old lady who swallowed a fly.

Interestingly, according to the Wiki article, the most widely spread and invasive of all introduced species in Australia is the common domestic cat.
