Default Something is eating my cabbage

I feel like it maybe rabbits. Is there anything I can do to stop it? (besides killing it)

wire cages around your plants work well

Live trap and relocate, or 1" mesh chicken wire fence, starting at least 6" in the ground will work. There are also scents that can be had at garden centers and the like that are reputed to keep them away, but need to be re-applied every so often, and after every rain.

I hooked up one of those motion detector fixtures with CFLs in it right in the garden. I'm trying to find some old buzzer or something that I could add instead of one of the lights. So far so good.
