Rabbits Wreaking Havoc on Cars at Denver International Airport
 
Travelers have a warning for drivers who park their cars near Denver International Airport (DIA). Rabbits are chewing the wires under many cars costing owners a lot of money. The rabbits get in and chew the brake lines, the clutch lines and other wiring. Local car repair shops estimates they can do thousands of dollars in damage.

"Brake lines" and "clutch lines" are hydraulics pipes, not wires.

DIA is the abbreviation for the airport's name, DEN is the actual airport code. I had no clue where DIA is.

Here it's packrats. They're notorious for gnawing on wires. They got my odometer and spedometer wires.

Why would that make the oil light come on?

And what do the rabbits find so attractive about hydraulic lines? Enquiring minds want to know.

That didn't make sense to me either, unless the mechanic found the damage to the AC while investigating the problem with the oil light.
