Local mafia
« on: January 04, 2019, 02:45:24 pm »
Our local mafia have left a rabbits head in the depression of the engine cover of my car.  I am guessing that the culprit is a stoat.  The car goes out nearly every day.  The head was found on a routine fluids check and was probably left sometime over christmas.

We had a rat nest in our car engine one year.  Unfortunately they had made the nest out of the rubber insulation on all the electrics  ::)  No wonder the car wouldn't start.  It's a great place because it gets nice and warm.

Friend of mine had to scrap her posh BMW because mice were living in it and had ruined all the electrics and anything else they could chew through

Fortunately nothing chewed on the vehicle just footprints in the dust and a rabbits head cached for future snacking.  I hope it was for a future snack and not a warning to us.  Either way it is now on the muck heap.
