Bunnies are attacking cars at Denver International Airport according to a new report. On Feb. 15, the Christian Science Monitor reported that federal wildlife workers already removed over 100 rabbits after several starting causing some major problems for people there.
According to the report, the bunnies -- as cute as they may be -- have been eating spark plug cables and other wiring causing a lot of frustrated airport visitors. Workers have been working diligently to remove the rabbits and to try and keep them away, but so far, their efforts aren't working too well.
Bunnies attacking cars sounds like some kind of a joke -- or maybe something you'd see in a cartoon, but the little hoppers are responsible for thousands of dollars worth of damage. Rabbits have been taking up residence, so to speak, under the cars because the vehicles provide shelter and a spot of warmth for them in these cold winter months.
So far, workers have put up higher fences and tried to make the parking lots more appealing to other wildlife like eagles and hawks -- prime bunny-predators. So far, the rabbits have not been scared and they keep coming back for more.
Another way to stop bunnies from attacking cars is by using fox or coyote urine because the scent of a predator might keep them away. However, as one can imagine, this can be costly and is time consuming.
