    Hi there. This morning my rabbits hutch had strips of wood "removed" from it, and they were lying on the ground in front of the hutch.

    Would a fox be a likely suspect? I can't think what other animal might have tried to "get at" her?

    She was fine. We've had badgers in the garden before but we've never had any damage to the hutch. There looks like some claw/teeth marks on the wood. I've bolted her run on this morning, just in case...
