Victory over bunnykind

I’m getting ready to leave for the airport, and Mary sends me a photo from home. She’s been working hard at a garden in the backyard, and I helped put up a crude fence around it. We did a good enough job. Look at that frustrated bunny, excluded from the carrots and squash and who-knows-what-else Mary planted.

It’s probably scheming to tunnel under the flagstones, though.

    It looks me that it is waiting for the rest of the team to bring the ladders.

    Do you have raccoons in the area? They would have dismantled the fence in 5 minutes.

    Toronto has had an ongoing battle with them for many years. A friend who has not lived there in 10 years still sounds haunted when speaking of them.

    Four or five years ago Toronto, with some fanfare introduced a new “Racoon-Proof” garbage can about 4 or 5 years ago.

    It seems that it took them almost a week to learn how to open them.

    My dad’s been fighting a battle of wits with the pet bunnies for years now and so far he’s the losing party.

    You can tell that he’s thinking, “Of course you know this means war!” I’m really curious to see how battles between bunnies and spiders will end.
