I've tried the over-the-counter repellents and those don't seem to work. I put out "Critter-Ridder" on the spots they frequent a couple days ago and they're right back out there sitting on top of the treated area. Tried something a couple years ago with dried fox-pee or some other such concoction but that didn't work, either. No point in trapping them because there's a den under several of the neighbor's porches so they'll just make more of themselves. Can't put up a fence (not in the front yard).

I'm seriously considering a pellet gun or something like that...
My sister in-law insists on bringing their beagle over to our house. The thing is fast and strong and with my back problems I can't deal with it but it finally paid off. They came over Saturday and let it out back and the dog got hold of a rabbit that has been raising a family in the back. They said they thought she had one of my dogs squeaky toys but ran out side when we told them we don't have any squeaky dog toys.

Now part of me feels bad for the rabbits that she didn't get. Not sure if it was an adult or one of the babies. I was at soccer.
