Rabbits Ate My Car

If you park at Denver International Airport, chances are good you've seen rabbits in the fields around the Pike's Peak long term parking lot. If you regularly use this lot, heads up: rabbits have developed a taste for wiring in 2002 and newer cars. In some cases, this has left returning travelers stranded, and facing expensive towing and repair bills.

Why are the rabbits attracted to automotive wiring? It appears that soy and soy oil is used in wiring insulation, and the rabbits find this irresistible. A large percentage of the reports come from drivers of German cars, which apparently taste better than their Japanese or American counterparts.
