Bunnies attacking cars at the Denver International Airport has made headlines due to the nature of what's causing the unique problem, News10 reports Feb. 15.
Apparently rabbits are lured by the warmth provided under car hoods and wind up chewing on the insulator portion of ignition cables. The damage has become increasingly common at the airport with bunnies attacking cars that travelers park. Fur and small pellets are evidence that rabbits are the culprit.
The parts of the car that the bunnies are eating so happen to be critical wiring that helps run the vehicle. Damage on the cars can run from several hundred dollars into the thousands.
In order to reduce the number of bunny attacks on the cars, more fencing will be installed to make it harder for the animals to burrow under. Additionally, more hawk and eagle perches will be made around the airport. Employees at various locations around the airport want to create as natural as deterrents as possible in decreasing the car incidents.
Fox and coyote urine have proven to also be a great method in keeping the bunnies from attacking cars. In fact, travelers have been given the substance by local merchants to coat the wires of their vehicles with.
Looks like there's just one more thing fliers have to think about before boarding a plane!
