sweet-daddy-2: How the hell do they get that high into the engine well?
Imagine the stink after your engine heats up.
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.

monoski: Mice just chowed the wire to the oxygen sensor in the girlfriends car. $330 sensor, ouch!

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.

Walker: My mother used to work at Dollar Rent-a-car at the Denver Airport.

She said:
That is so weird, because being I was the person in Admin. that was in charge of Accident and Damaged Rental Cars, when I would take my Camera and go out every Morning and Evening to do my paperwork, there would be Rabbits running around all over the place. A lot of Baby Rabbits too.  My Mechanic would find them sometimes under the Hood, hiding there to keep warm, but I remember him telling me he found a lot of wires that were chewed!

/I don't know why she randomly capitalizes words.

Because she's an illiterate retard?

Happy Hours: 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.

Wait, Denver leases it? Why on earth didn't they just buy it initially?
