Rabbits are everywhere this year. I had to cut some pieces of welded wire fence and dome it over my beans. Looked out a couple of weeks ago to see a crazed rabbit sitting on top of that fencing nipping the few leaves that were poking through. I stepped out on the deck to "shoo" it away and the rabbit immediately charged right at me. I had no choice but to defend myself with the Ruger 17.Rabbits have eaten everything to the ground except leaf lettuce, cukes and peppers. They have destoyed 2 plantings of swiss chard, green beans, spinach and peas. The radishes are ok as they don't eat the root crop. I've never saw this many rabbits.
