They'd be better off with Tribbles.

Denvers restaurants need to get real creative with bunny recipes.

I enjoy how folks seem to blame the airport when a bunny nibbles on their cars there. :p  Because the airport officials put the bunnies there themselves, obviously.

They're talking about putting some falcon perches (hawks, etc) around the airport to help with it.  Seems like that'd work, so long as they stay away from the planes.

They come to the recently driven cars for warmth, and once they're there, they find that many of the materials used for coating ignition cables are soy-based, and the rabbits find that quite tasty,"


After I got rid of my Japanese car the problem went away.

Southern boys with shotguns and all you can eat payment would work better.

That's the post of the month as far as I'm concerned. Thanks for a good laugh Travis.

It was a problem back at the old DIA/Stapleton airport 20-30 yrs ago.

Moving the airport a few miles isn't going to get rid of the bunnies.

Marmots, mice are even worse at our TH's !!

I wonder what sound an engine makes as it attempts to inhale a hawk...

The obvious answer is rattlesnakes.  Drop a few breeding colonies around the parking lot and people will be BEGGING for the bunnies back.

More coyotes was my first thought.   We have lots of coyotes, but it sounds like the bunny population could support more.

I have the tried and true solution-seen at various trailheads in the Sierra: Just keep a roll of chicken wire in your trunk, and deploy it around the base of your car.
Seems to deter the Marmots at Mineral King, why wouldn't it work for bunny rabbits in Denver?
