Tools of the Trade
Shovel for digging up weeds.
Snake tongs for wayward rattlers.
Gasoline tank for weed-eater refilling.
Vitamin water for vitamin water.
Bucket for grass clippings.
Gloves for thistle.
Spattered bunny barn for contrast.
Volunteers came out to clear the outdoor bunny enclosure at the sanctuary. There is a poisonous plant that, although the rabbits avoid it, we needed to remove for our piece of mind. Weedeating occurred first due to the fact we found a rattlesnake in the tall grass. The snake was tonged and moved to another part of the property, far away. He will probably come back. This will annoy us. We've had rattlers in with the rabbits and chickens before. Interestingly, they've never killed and eaten any of them.
Anyways, these are but a few of the tools needed to clear out a 1/4 acre of outdoor bunny haven.
