Bunnies are getting their revenge on cars

Car-nibbling rabbits invade Denver airport - U.S. news - Weird news - msnbc.com

Quote:
A new problem is taking off at Denver International Airport: car-eating rabbits, NBC affiliate KUSA reports. Dexter Meyer told KUSA he just bought a Turbo Diesel Volkswagen Jetta.
He drove it to the Pikes Peak Parking Lot at Denver International Airport and headed out for a nine-day vacation, he told the station.

Meyer told KUSA this story:
"I turned on the ignition and all these lights started flashing, I pulled out the manual and it said I had a big problem so I took back to the dealership," Meyer said.
"The service manager said, 'Your wiring has been eaten by a rodent probably.' I said, 'I live in Stapleton.' 'I'm not aware of any rodents running around Stapleton.' And then he said, 'You didn't have the car parked at DIA did you?' And I said, 'Actually, yes that's where I picked the car up.' And he said, 'We've had a significant number of problems with rabbits eating through the wiring in people's cars.'"
When I was in Sequoia National Park, I read warnings about marmots. Now rabbits too?

Heh, I was half expecting LOL Cat-style pictures of rabbits brandishing medieval weapons. I wonder if such things exist.

Got a buddy that is a mechanic and he says he finds dead creatures under the hood of non-commuter vehicles pretty regularly.

Well, that is an unexpected problem. Cinnabunny sure loves attacking our electrical cords around home. If she made a home under a car, I wouldn't put it past her.
Their fence around the parking lot probably makes it worse - the critters are trapped and still breeding, going for wiring because food is scarce.
