    If the rabbit is in a good, sturdy hutch then it is relatively safe from foxes -- however, you will need to put some type of mat or flat piece of wood in the cage that the rabbit can easily get on to if it feels threatened. Raccoons, foxes, possums, coyotes, and other such critters are known for getting up underneath hutches and pulling rabbits' toenails off through the wire bottom if the rabbit doesn't have a way to protect itself. This should be in addition to any nesting box or solid "burrow box," it works best if it's something the rabbit can stand on and still reach its food and water.

    I have a few articles on rabbits posted, but if you have any more questions about rabbits then please feel free to send them to me. My experience comes from my 150+-animal for-profit rabbitry, I have worked with hundreds of rabbits both indoors and outdoors. The "livestock" rabbits stay outside year-round in Wyoming, which is known for weather extremes, so I've learned a lot of tips and tricks along the way.

    Definitely yes.  Even if you have it in a hutch, the fox can jump up and rip open the screen.  I've seen it happen to a friends rabbit that got mauled by a stray dog.   Hope it's not too late?

    They might. It also depends on how scared the foxes will be of you. If they know its your patch then they won't come around.

    For the protection of your bunny you should buy a hutch for it. The bunny will be safe in the hutch. The best place to buy a rabbit hutch is Feel Good company in the UK.

    You must make sure you buy a secure hutch for your rabbit, the fox will definately look for weak spots where it can get to your pet.
