May sound funny. In Glendale, AZ we have rabbits not eating our plants but the wires on my mom's van...4 times last month. What's up with that?
I lived in Northern MN for several years and the size of the Jack Rabbits and the damage that they can do is frightening.
I would contact your County Extension Office to inquire on the recommended method to control these pests.
