Hoards of hungry bunnies are causing a serious problem at the Denver International Airport.

It seems this issue has been ongoing as bunnies are causing hundreds and sometimes thousands of dollars in damages as they eat away at wires under the hoods of parked vehicles.

The USDA Wildlife Service has been capturing and removing about 100 bunnies every month at the airport, according to CBS News.

"I see at least dozens every morning. They go hide under the cars and the cars are warm," said airport shuttle driver Michelle Anderson.

"They like to chew on the insulator portion of the ignition cables. That's what we see," said Araphahoe Autotek spokesman Wiley Faris.

"That wiring harness has all the wiring for the car so it can run from the hundreds into the thousands depending on where the harness is damaged," said Faris.

"It's hard to get rid of the bunnies but we're going to try as many natural things as possible," said a USAirport Parking employee.

"We're also going to build raptor perches for the hawks and eagles," said USAirport Parking.

This is a headache for travelers as the repairs typically have to come out from the vehicle owners as airport parking lot operators are not responsible for vandalism. Also insurance companies do not always cover damage from rodents or small animals.

Below is a video back in 2010 however the issues is the same as Wildlife service tries their best to remove the bunnies.
