Salted Rabbit

The original owner of our house positioned two blue plastic barrels along the driveway, filled with salt for ice melting. We’ve neither used the salt (a snowblower suffices for most storms) nor removed the barrels; they’ve been in those spots for at least three decades.

Many critters pause in front of the barrels:

Those who fit often hop inside:

We’re pleased to provide public salt licks!
