So I am making a samich at around 11:00 this morning and I look outside in the backyard and see 2 rabbits. I go out to run them off so they don't start digging their holes and dropping their childrens in them. Well, I shew them off through the fence to the neighbors yard and notice they are both intently looking back at where I saw them and weren't really running off.

So I walk over to where they were to see if they started digging and sure as shit, there is the hole, fully of fur. I get ready to reach in and start yanking the stuff out and I see things moving. **** ME! NOT AGAIN!

This is the 3rd time they have done this over the years, usually in my front yard though. So now, because the wife is a softy and I am too as well to a point, we can't let the dog out in the backyard, which means the leash comes out and I'm outside walking everytime she has to tinkle and poo, and I have to mow the grass with the care of a brain surgeon so not to kill the little ****ers.

You really shouldn't feel bad about killing them. They have no natural predators in the city and they'll get out of control if you don't do anything about them.

Seems like cats usually take care of these kinds of things.

We got rid of ones in our front yard by putting a couple of rubber snakes out there.

We've been hit twice this year by the little demons. Both times we found out by one of our dogs bringing us a present. Weird they haven't killed any and are really gentle with the baby bunnies. So then I have to go out and search the yard for the nest to put the gift bunny back in the hole. Rabbits really are stupid animals. I have two 80 lb dogs that use our fenced in yard for their business. None of our direct neighbors have any dogs. Why pop a bunny brood in my backyard? Makes no sense at all. I also have a animal loving wife so what I have to do is build a dog proof barricade around the nest but leave room for the parents to get in.

There "WERE" a lot of rabbits around here. Lets just say several have died off over the last two weeks due to lead poisoning.

My dog caught a rabbit in some steelpipe awhile back & when i pulled the rabbit out she clamped down on it. Pulled the fur and guts straight away from the body. Mox was in heaven.

The wife won't let me kill them. I am a real softy for animals. I don't hunt. If they died from abandonment though at this point I wouldn't feel bad. But I would if it had something to do with something I did. I know, I'm a wuss.

That last batch that was in my front yard managed to live and I came home from work one day and saw the fuckers out of their hole so I ran them off. Seems like that will be a repeat. And I can't let the dog out, she is a beagle, she will kill them.

This.

My cat has killed 5 rabbits this year... and he has no front claws.

Bunnies are terrified of my yard.

Maybe you should reason with them, then.

You know, the capper is I bought this stuff that you are supposed to spray around the perimeter of your yard to keep rabbits away. Did I use it? No. :banghead:

You can try bloodmeal, too.

Good god, let the dog have at them. Think of it as a public service for your neighbors who have gardens.

A couple of years ago I saw a rabbit in our backyard pawing at the ground really fast. When I went over there it ran away and I looked at the shallow hole where it had been. There were like 6 or 7 dead baby rabbits in there. I don't know if maybe males kill the babies, or it was like a territorial thing or what. Kind of gross though.

These work well for relocating baby rabbits....

I tried that stuff and you have to reapply after each rain or watering of the yard. My pellet gun has done the trick though. We tried those plastic owls, snakes and all sorts of things as the wife is a softy as well and nothing worked. I started killing them with my pellet gun and I swear they will not come near my house. I see them at the next door neighbors now.

I have 3 Bassets. The oldest about 16 is the rabbit killer. The middle one (7yrs) is the hunter nothing in the back yard except frogs. The youngest (5yrs) and the largest and the loudness is an indoor dog.

One of my daughter's cats dragged a full grown one home recently, that cat is a real tough hunter but not really into fighting and actually avoids confrontation with the other cats.

Better than gophers! I'm, on average, killing 7 a night within 60 feet of the house and they keep coming and digging up the lawn. I figure, by the amount of ammo I've used, that I've killed close to 200 so far.

I have a few rabbits (3-4)around, but they don't dig anything up. They stay under the propane tank, eat the dandelions, and go back to the tank.

Pete I hope your dog doesn't accidentally get out the back door into the back yard and tear up the rabbit den. That would be too bad.

Next time run over two and make her a nice pair of gloves out of them. That will stop the tears.

Being so close to 4th of july, I would have tried the colored smoke bombs first, then backed that up by taking pot shots with bottle rockets and for a finale threw no less than a 1/4 stick with a fresh bundle of black cats down the hole.

If you have a fenced in yard I can bring my Bassets over to get rid of them...

I ran over a rabbit once with a push mower.

I didn't know I could push one that fast.
