Bunnies are attacking several cars parked by travelers at the Denver International Airport by eating spark plug cable wires after finding the perfect place to stay comfortable and warm.

The rabbits 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.

More than 100 bunnies are removed by wildlife workers each 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.

However, while the solution might resolve the problem temporarily, car owners will have to deal with the odor.
