To Want Every Bunny In The County To Die A HORRIBLE Death?

I've spent every spare minute since before Easter turning our builders' dump garden into a veg patch. Now the local bastard chav bunnies have eaten everything except the leaves off the potatoes.

I want them all to die horribly & slowly, in spite of DDs' protestations: AIBU?

PS. If anyone's local bunnies have got Mixy, please catch some, box them up & send them to Chepstow.

poor bunnies sad

MrsTwinks Wed 22-Jun-11 22:31:22

shoot the bunnies and eat em?? love a bit of rabbit mmmm...

MrsDistinctlyMintyMonetarism Wed 22-Jun-11 22:34:00

Umm yes. You are being unreasonable.

Put up some fencing.

Accept if you are near Chepstow you are probably near the Forest of Dean and that means lots of wildlife (even of the annoying variety).

Accept that they have not been planning this for months, drawing up maps and digging tunnels in order to piss you off.

And breathe.

YABU. Rabbit proof your garden.

reelingintheyears Wed 22-Jun-11 22:34:24

Anyway..how do you know they're chav bunnies?

Do they have plasma tv's in their warrens and get income support?

Do they wear Burberry?

oi,its THEIR world too you knowhmm

DogsBestFriend Wed 22-Jun-11 22:35:56

YABU. Nuff said.

usualsuspect Wed 22-Jun-11 22:36:55

I reckon they must be MC bunnies if they are eating all your veg

Riven Got my Yr 10 Business Studies class to look into this. Bunny proof fence has to go one foot underground and three foot over. Cost was about £1,000 to protect max £100 of veg. That's why bunnies must die.

Waiting for bunnicide advice, not sympathy / bunniphilia.

Fencing. Bury it at least a foot down. Or net your crops.

(PS is OK people, he's very elderly now and we developed a high wall: no extra bunnies were harmed once we realised)

SuePurblybilt Wed 22-Jun-11 22:38:58

Sorry, x posted.
Bury hula hoops half way down, along veg rows, stretch over netting or polythene and peg down. Instant netted crops or mini polytunnels.

Aww - I love a wee bunny I do........... they are entitled to live sad

MrsTwinks Wed 22-Jun-11 22:39:43

ok urm... a skinned gutted bunny costs £3/4 quid, so thats what about 340 rabbits? so put out snares, kill them all, sell as dinner and use money to put up fence??

AKMD Wed 22-Jun-11 22:39:52

Get a laser-guided sprinkler like this one.

YABU to want all bunnies to die. Really it's only the ones who have eaten your veg that need to expire.
Whilst IABU too, I harbour similar feelings about the mole that is ruining my back garden, the slugs that have eaten my courgette plants and the clothes moths that meant I threw away my cashmere jumpers which were full of holes.

Salmotrutta Wed 22-Jun-11 22:42:13

I love moles too........... gorgeous fur. But they do nip you if you catch one!!

thenightsky Wed 22-Jun-11 22:42:41

YANBU.

Hate the little bastards since I watched them systematically snap the heads off all my flowers and just leave them. Vandalism.

Saggyoldclothcatpuss Wed 22-Jun-11 22:44:51

YANBU! I hate the scratchy vicious little fuckers! Can't even stand to eat them! I've got nothing against shooting them, not so keen on Myxie or the new gas bombing thing they use on them now.

Grow pretty flowers and get your veg from a market, or give Wallace & Gromit a call.
