Bugs vs Elmer
You know, I’m a really nonviolent person with vegetarian tendencies. I love animals. I like rabbits. I had a pet one as a kid. But honestly, sometimes a rabbit’s behavior can turn the meekest gardener into Elmer Fudd.
My lovely coral bells made it through the winter, and now, mama rabbit is digging a nest among it’s roots for her babies. I object! The battle lines have been drawn. I filled in the hole, and will put down some wire as a barrier. I hope she wises up and moves on. This could get ugly. I could never harm a rabbit myself, but I’m already rooting for the coyotes, and I do have an Elmer Fudd acquaintance.
