Ha! I guessed something was chewing on the wires. +1 Internet for me.

Can't they set coyotes loose in the lot ;-)

Yeah, and then gorillas to take care of the coyote problem. And when wintertime rolls around, the gorillas simply freeze to death.

I'm more concerned about them building the roosts; encouraging birds to congregate around an airport probably isn't the best idea.

Avoid the Acme brand coyote urine.

Okay, I coated the coyotes with spark plugs, and put them in the garage. How does this help me get to the airport?
 
2013-02-15 03:07:55 PM
Mechanics say coating the wires with fox or coyote urine can rob the rabbits of their appetite. Fox urine can be purchased at many hunting shops.

Or just find a cooperative fox.

Goddamn bloody rabbits.  Destructive nuisances, the lot of them.

Power cables, carpets, jeans...plus they're prodigious poopers.  Glad to be rid of 'em.

But don't set the coyotes loose if you're already putting coyote urine in the engine compartment.  Or else it'll be coyote orgies all over your car.

That's what you get for insisting that your wire insulation be biodegradable.  They make it out of stuff that rodents find delicious.

It still seems cruel, attaching spark plugs to coyotes to make them urinate, just to appease the rabbits.

Sound like starting down a path to the point where we are counting on the cold weather to kill off the gorillas.

This is a known, long-standing problem (obviously a slow news week in Denver since Mayor Hancock hasn't said something stupid or entered an escort house).

Had this happen to me before, in 2001, at DIA.

Sent a note to DIA and the AMPCO parking folks, their reply was "tough shiat."

After that, I stopped parking at the airport.  Screw them.

It's no surprise that rabbits were able
To eat foods not vege-table
The rabbits in chorus
Say "these wires are for us -
That's why they're called 'jumper cable'"

Having had a set of brake line chewed through while on vacation, I can see where that would be a good idea.

We used Al-foil on all our cat-5 because our vorpal bunny LOVED cables. That little bastard even enjoyed hot sauce made with ghost peppers. The beasts are really quite unnatural.

Foil worked for some reason. I don't THINK he had any silver fillings...

You wish. That's not how it works with an O2 sensor wire. Very high temp capacity. Even the insulation is made to withstand high temps.

hey, old news is so exciting!

What's more interesting is the lease on the demonic blue horse is up this year.....IIRC Denver paid $650,000 to have that thing for 5 years and the artist was killed when a piece of it broke off while he was working on it. It's now valued at $2 million and the city has to decide if they want to keep it.

I really don't care, but I do think it's a waste of money.

Wait, Denver leases it? Why on earth didn't they just buy it initially?
 
2013-02-15 04:11:36 PM
This isn't new, bunnies have been chewing wires out there for years.

Also, the airport used raptors in the past to help bring down the pigeon population out there.

So there's that.

I just looked up some news on it.....maybe I'm wrong about it being a lease but according to one article " Denver Commission of Cultural Affairs has a rule that public art must remain in place for five years before petitions can be filed to remove it."

Also, there's a law that says that 1% of capital construction funds must be spent on art and since the airport cost $4.8 billion they had to spend $48 million on "art"......when you have that much money to spend I suspect it's easy to waste a bit of it.

It's pretty mind boggling to think that there's $48 million worth of art in the Denver airport. I've flown out of there a number of times and the horse statue is the only piece of art I even remember.

I just thought of something,....there are a lot of rabbits in my neighborhood and until recently there were a lot of prairie dogs too (construction is taking a toll on them lately).

I keep my car in my garage so I'm not worried but I would have a massive orgasm of schadenfreude if I were to find out that they were chewing up all the wires in my neighbor's car.

My aunt volunteers at a wildlife rehab ctr. She collects the coyote feces to surround her garden to keep the deer out.

She brought a bunch of baggies of it to a family holiday once. You know you live in a family of hippie gardeners when everyone shares poop instead of presents.

Came here to mention that as a mechanic, I see a lot of this in the winter, usually at least one customer a week, at least.  (I'm in MI).  After driving to your destination, your motor is still warm for several hours and critters will crawl into your engine compartment to stay warm.  It's not an uncommon sight to see an air filter housing filled with stored rations.  I have seen engine compartments also covered with critters that didn't get out in time before the motor was started.  I think the worse was a guy who stored his Porsche in his garage for the winter and come spring, there had been something living in it and had destroyed three different wiring harnesses, the bill was near $10K.

I also once popped a hood and there was a kitten covered in icicles sitting there, alive though barely.  I called the owner and described the kitten and he said that it sounded like a stray he had seen around his garage; the cat was lucky- the client had just drive 200+ plus miles before dropping his car for service. One inch to the side and motor would have been covered with fur and kitten parts. I put some rags down in the top of my tool box and placed the kitten there where it stayed all day, warming up. I kept giving it water and pieces of ham and cheese from my sandwich I had brought for lunch.  By quitting time, I had the cat purring, though she was sick for a few weeks.

That was over five years ago, today "Fenderbomb" still likes to sleep on my pillow next to me at night.
