If you have parked recently in the Denver Airport then you should drive right into your closest Checkered Flag service department to have your electrical systems looked at. In the most odd story I have seen in recent months (and I see a lot of odd stories) I read of bunnies in the Denver Airport parking lot tearing into the electrical components of parked long term cars while hiding under them to keep warm.
Cute and fuzzy bunnies take on a new definition when you think of the thousands of dollars in damage they can do to an unsuspecting vehicle. Those crazy long carrot chewing teeth look more like fangs of death to the underbelly of your Beemer.
Bold Bunnies Attacking Cars at Denver Airport
By Sky News US Team, in New York
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.
Local mechanics have offered a more unorthodox solution for worried car owners.
They say coating the wires with fox urine - available at hunting shops - will deter the creatures.

So, if you have recently been on sabbatical to Denver, you may want to come in to either a Checkered Flag Service Department or Parts Department today and have those under parts looked at. Giving them a call today at (757) 687-3447 might be the best call you could make. If you are on your way home to Denver, and are now reading this story, my condolences.
