Denver Airport dealing with eco-car eating rabbits

Car eating rabbits invade Denver!

It seems that even rabbits like eco-friendly products, maybe even a little too much. The little critters are wreaking havoc on cars at Denver International Airport because they are munching on the eco-friendly wiring that is made out of soy.

Several owners returned to find their car would not start because of chewed up wiring.

Denver Airport officials claim they are aware of the problem, but a solution has yet to be found. Officials responded by saying that they had a fence in the area, however as we all know from childhood stories, fences are not bunny proof. Additionally, airport brass is considering adding foot patrols to the area to shoo the bunnies away. Car owners whose vehicles have been damaged suggested signs warning customers to park at their own risk.

How about “Warning! Hungry car eating bunnies on the loose! Park at your own risk!”
