Savage Rabbits at the Denver Airport

Today's just because news item:
It's a problem that plagues passengers who park at Denver International Airport- bunnies are causing hundreds and sometimes thousands of dollars in damage to cars. The rabbits eat the wires under the hood. The USDA Wildlife Service is removing at least 100 bunnies every month but the problem persists.

"I see at least dozens every morning. They go hide under the cars and the cars are warm," said airport shuttle driver Michelle Anderson. "They like to chew on the insulator portion of the ignition cables. That's what we see," said Arapahoe Autotek spokesman Wiley Faris.
And once you have a rabbit problem, it is hard to do much about it, because they breed faster than you can kill them. (One hundred a month? Ha!) So regular airport parkers have taken to smearing their ignition wires with coyote urine.

Monty Python and the Holy Grail (1975)
Tim: Follow. But! Follow only if ye be men of valor! For the entrance to this cave is guarded by a creature so foul, so cruel, that no man yet has fought with it... and lived! BONES of full fifty men lie *strewn* about its lair! So! Brave knights! If you do doubt your courage or your strength, come no further, for death awaits you all with nasty, big, pointy teeth...
