Bold Bunnies Attacking Cars At Denver Airport
Bunnies have been wreaking havoc on cars parked at Denver International Airport - eating spark plug cables and other wiring.
The furry creatures have already caused thousands of dollars in damage as wildlife officials work to solve the problem.
"I see at least dozens every morning," airport shuttle driver Michelle Anderson told KCNC-TV. "They go hide under the cars and the cars are warm."
A spokesperson from an automotive service centre said the rabbits are chewing on the insulator section of the vehicles' ignition cables, which can lead to hefty repair bills.
The station reported that wildlife workers are removing at least 100 bunnies a month while parking companies build better fences and perches for predator hawks and eagles.

5. Too much construction near DIA driving out the predators.
The raptors, coyotes and foxes have moved deeper into the plains. The raptors especially have issues with the noise and currents from the jets.
Sprawl may make for cheap new housing, but it brings many consequences.
