Do you think this bunny is cute? Many of you will say yes. I say it’s all in the eye of the beholder. In my beholding eye, this bunny is NOT CUTE! He and his relatives are home-grown garden terrorists and have taken over our yard. They’re devouring our garden and chomping on bushes, burrowing deep down into their roots to build nests. The bunny hop has become a national pastime in our yard!
My husband and I have declared an all out war on those hoppy little things. Put your furry fists up, you little critters. We’re in it to win it! We’ve set out cages and traps and sprayed some gag me with a spoon animal repellent to end the bunny party. I’ve even resorted to hanging a bunny muff from my youth in the yard as a warning.
This could happen to you!
There’s not a minute to lose. Turn your head and those critters are on a destructive path. It’s time to go. I’m on bunny patrol.
For those of you who have a warm fuzzy place in your hearts for bunnies, this book is for you. Emmaline and the Bunny by Katherine Hannigan (Greenwillow Books, 2009)
