Vegetable farmers have long known what visitors to the Denver International Airport are just now discovering: fox urine is incredibly effective at keeping rabbits at bay.
According to Sky News, the long-eared lagomorpha are hopping their way under recently parked cars for warmth. That would be just fine, except the rabbits then turn their sharp teeth onto vehicle electrical systems. The result can be thousands of dollars worth of repairs for travelers who leave their vehicles in long term parking. Local wildlife workers have been removing up to 100 rabbits a month from the airport's parking lots.

Local mechanics, meanwhile, are advising owners to mark their vehicle's wires with fox urine. The solution is available at most outdoor and hunting stores, though we'd say simply spraying the ground around your vehicle sufficient enough to keep the bunnies away. ( We're told they have a vicious streak a mile wide.)
