Bunnies taking toll on cars at Denver airport

DENVER (AP) - Silly rabbits.
 
The furry creatures are wreaking havoc on cars parked at Denver International Airport by eating spark plug cables and other wiring.
 
To stop the problem, federal wildlife workers are removing at least 100 bunnies a month while parking companies install better fences and build perches for predator hawks and eagles.
 
KCNC-TV reported Thursday there's another way to stop the damage that can cost thousands of dollars to repair.
 
Mechanics say coating the wires with fox or coyote urine can rob the rabbits of their appetite. Fox urine can be purchased at many hunting shops.
