    Getting rid of rabbits under deck! Blood meal safe to use with dog?

    Hey guys,

    There are a bunch of rabbits hanging out under my deck. I really don't mind that they're there, but they poop all over our yard and my puppy ends up eating it all the time when he's out there. Its the middle of winter in Minnesota, so I don't blame the bunnies for finding a warm place, but its starting to get a bit much (not to mention disgusting when Odie eats their poop).

    I've heard blood meal works well for getting rid of them humanely and quickly - does anyone know if it is safe for dogs to be near? Also, any other ideas on how to get rid of the bunnies is welcome.....thanks!

    We live out in the country. My neighbor tried blood meal for the rabbits about 2 years ago and boy it didnt go too well with his dog. His dog dug and dug and dug in that garden, then I read up about it and apparently the smell draws them to it. He constantly had to keep the dog away from the garden. There were also many hawks hovering over his yard LoL.

    It was always quite funny to see and know why it was happening haha!

    I do not know what other advice to offer on any other ways to get rid of them that you might want to use. After the blood meal he just started shooting them and that was his solution.
    Good Luck!
