:( This morning went to feed sooty my black rabbit and she was missing,no signs of her escaping,no fluff about,she is kept in one of those large houses with the run underneath and then she has another run surrounding so the doors on her house are always open as she loves the freedom, in the summer she just roams the garden but recently i  put  this surrond around the rabbit house to give my plants a chance of growing  as she has eaten everything in site,the surrounding pen is still in place,no digging around for tunneling its as if she's been  picked up out of her pen and taken,we are wandering if a large bird has taken her even though she's quite a large rabbit.

Oh dear Jayne, fingers crossed she had escaped and not been taken.
When we kept rabbits they too had the run of the garden and always had the hutch door open.
It is probably a seriously daft question but are you sure she hasn't tunnelled out. Mine used to try and it is strange how little evidence there is on the surface!' Tight squeezes x x x ((((((hugs))))))))x x x
