I just found a small rabbit hole with about 5 bunnies around. I am
selling the house soon and I don't want them around. They are right in
the center of a bed of tulips.
My only idea is relocation... Drop a bucket over them and relocate them
off in a forest perserve
(can use previous suggestions of electrocution and cat/dog)
The shotgun may work.
I can duct tape the lettuce to the end of the barrel and sit behind a
cactus waiting like Wile E. Coyote holding a string that is tied to the

not expert, but what about just learning to live with them and maybe plant
some bushes that the rabbits won't chomp away at?
Some potential home buyers might even see the presence of rabbits as a plus.
They are likeable creatures and not rodents.
Hey!....How about placing an upside-down hat outside the hole, with some
carrots in it, and when the rabbits hop into the hat to eat the carrots, say
abracadabra and then snap your fingers!
