You may think bunnies are just adorabe bunches of fuzz, but you wouldn't if that aw-inducing bundle of cute left you with a $400 bill and a broken-down car. One bunny recently set its scrunched sights on a pilot's unsuspecting car in a parking lot at the Denver Airport. Robert Favuzza returned to a dead car and a $428 repair bill. According to USA Today, Favuzza's insurance doesn't cover "Damage By Rabbit." Turns out some German-made cars have wires with a soy-based coating—in other words, rabbit food.

Denver Airport is no stranger to these unlikely antagonists. The location's surrounding prarieland make the parking lots an easy target for bunnies on the prowl. One local mechanic has a suggestion for how to keep your car safe from bunny chewing: predator urine. Favuzza's method of choice moving forward? A cheap, rubber snake thrown underneath the car.
