Neighbor buried rabbit in my garden
This is an odd story. My question is: would any problems result from a deceased mammal being planted in one of my flower gardens? I have several perennials, but mostly do annuals (wildflowers and some herbs). Here's the story, which happened this evening. My neighbors have two dogs that are fenced in. Apparently a little rabbit crawled under the fence and was killed by one of the dogs. (Sad, I love the bunnies that frolic around here) They found the young rabbit, and didn't want to bury it in their yard because the dogs would just dig it back up. But instead of burying it somewhere else in their yard that was beyond the fence, they buried it in my large flower garden, fortunately in a spot where there were no perennials. I'm not sure why, but they came over and confessed what they'd done, with the excuse that my dirt was "softer" (because it's a garden). They showed me the spot where they'd buried the little guy, and I was relieved it was a patch where I'd had annuals last year. The whole thing is extremely bizarre, though honestly I'm pleased they thought to bury the bunny rather than simply dispose of him. I'm perplexed why they thought it was smart to do so in an area they knew I grew lots of flowers. And even more perplexed that they came over and told me what they'd done. (I suspect the hubby did it, then told his wife, and she convinced him he needed to let me know.) They don't garden. So I'm wondering if there's any problem in going ahead and planting flowers around the burial site. I do NOT want to dig up the expired bunny rabbit, so I would just sprinkle some seeds. This is just so strange. I have some of that sprinkle powder (bobcat and coyote urine) to keep bunnies and rodents out of gardens, so tomorrow I'm going to sprinkle it around my neighbor's fence.
