Sorry to hear about your precious rabbits. I know you loved them very much and must be heartbroken on the way they met their demise. (((HUGS))) This should be an example for these people to realize that they need to fence those dogs in!

Raccoons are mustilids; rabbits are rodents. 'Coons are opportunistic omnivores, meaning they'll eat whatever they can digest to survive, but they have predatory teeth and jaw structure, and won't hesitate to prey on herbivorous rodents like rabbits. Interestingly enough, though, most rodents are cannibalistic as well when necessity dictates.
