I hated it, but my son went out back and pumped up his bb gun 10 pumps and shot a rabbit in the head and it died immediately. All of the other rabbits took off and I haven't seen another one since. I did make him clean it and cook it and he ate a little of it. Something about killing an animal seems to keep their friends away. My problem is the CROWS! Fake plastic owls seem to be helping some. Plus pulling up all of our corn. What a waste that was. Stupid crows.
