DIA figuring out what to do about rabbits

DENVER, Feb. 16 (UPI) -- Officials at the Denver International Airport are looking into ways of ridding its parking lot of bunnies who are attacking cars.

Rabbits are eating the wires under hoods of car, causing hundreds and sometimes thousands of dollars in damage, KCNC-TV, Denver, reported.

"They like to chew on the insulator portion of the ignition cables. That's what we see," said Arapahoe Autotek spokesman Wiley Faris. "That wiring harness has all the wiring for the car so it can run from the hundreds into the thousands depending on where the harness is damaged."

USAirport Parking is taking action to keep the rabbits out of underneath vehicles.

"It's hard to get rid of the bunnies but we're going to try as many natural things as possible," said one USAirport Parking employee.

Those measures include installing a new fencing to make it harder for the bunnies to burrow under and spraying coyote urine in the area.

"We have found a good deterrent is predator urine, you can pick up fox urine at any pro hunting shop," said Faris.
