Hassenpfeffer

We have had problems the last couple of years with rabbits eating our flowers and vegetable plants. Last year they ate every single one of our edamame plants down to the ground, and this year they have decimated a bunch of annuals. They even dug a big hole under our back stoop to build a nest.

We finally got fed up and bought a no-kill trap, with the intention of trapping the rabbits and taking them far, far away where they can chew up someone else’s garden for a while.

Today we caught a small rabbit, which we believe to be from the litter that nested under our stoop. He is now most likely dining on someone’s petunias about 5 miles from here. I’m sure he was a bit put off by the whole thing, but all he needs to do is think of Hassenpfeffer – because that’s probably what would have happened to him if our neighbor had caught him instead of us…
