This is equivalent-to-Friday, isn't it?

At my new house, the entire back yard is a professionally landscaped garden.

It being spring[-ish] up here, hundreds (perhaps thousands?) of plants are
just starting to peek above ground. The yard has a chain-link fence all around
the perimeter, and apparently the previous owner also ran a three-foot height
of chicken-wire all the way around the bottom perimeter.

The only part they appear to have missed is getting the resident rabbit on
the OUTside of this arrangement. The critter is in rabbit heaven, but he's
laying waste to all the tender new shoots and sprouts that were supposed to
become a lovely garden this summer. (At least, I HOPE he's a "he"...)

I do have a live-capture trap (metal box with spring-door), but I can't
imagine what I could place inside for bait, given that the entire yard
is a smorgasbord.

Unlike the previous owners, I don't have any energetic little yappy-dogs
to chase the rabbit. So he has no reason to run. He literally sauntered
when I tried chasing and waving my arms to herd him toward the open gate.
Ever seen a rabbit sneer? I have. I didn't think anyone could sneer
while simultaneously wiggling their nose, but apparently it's not that hard.

Anyway, despite his lazy lifestyle and abundant free food, I really
don't think I have the patience to wait for his first coronary.

Waddaya got?
