Wild rabbits wreak havoc on parked cars at Denver International Airport

AAJanuary 26, 2013 DENVER -  Travelers have a warning for drivers who park their cars near Denver International Airport (DIA). Rabbits are chewing the wires under many cars costing owners a lot of money. The rabbits get in and chew the brake lines, the clutch lines and other wiring. Local car repair shops estimates they can do thousands of dollars in damage. “When I had the trouble with the oil light coming on, the dealer told me the wires that controlled the air conditioning were chewed,” said Ken Blum, one car owner who knows all about the not so funny bunny business at DIA. Blum has had to have repairs done on his car twice due to rabbit damage and he estimates the cost at approximately $700. “I saw no signs…nothing to tell me, ‘Hey, beware’,” Blum told CBS4. “My insurance didn’t cover it, the manufacturer didn’t cover it.” This isn’t a new problem at the airport. CBS4 first started covering hungry hares in 1999. They were munching on the wires of de-icing equipment. Now it seems they’ve moved to the outlying parking lots. CBS4 contacted airport officials about the problem. They said that only a small percentage of the people who park out there ever complain of rabbit caused car problems. They also told CBS4 that United States Department of Agriculture Wildlife Services agents patrol the parking lots and remove rabbits when they see them. –CBS

    I know this is a serious situation, but I couldn’t help but laugh. Back in the 50′s, there was an awful sci-fi movie called “Night of the Lupus”. It was about giant bunny rabbits terrorizing a western town. Maybe these rabbits are just trying to reclaim their land.

    Maybe the cold is driving them to hide under the hood of cars Becuase the engine gives off heat even when it is turned off after a while…possibility perhaps.

    I have to wonder why? … these lines and wires have got to taste bad to even to the little rabbits … maybe they are actually attacking what they perceive as an enemy … maybe the airport noise is driving them mad … maybe their imps in bunny clothings lol … : )
