Probably a chipmunk or rabbit. Any suggestions? Would any kind of fencing work? I don't have room to put in a bunny garden, maybe next year...

The birds were munching on mine. Just made a little dome of chicken wire.

We have a problem with slugs eating our strawberries, and the only thing I have found to work is a can of beer. The little guys love the stuff and drown in it.

my strawberries were disappearing for weeks before I discovered that my son(2 yrs) loves the green ones and was eating them all.

Deer were eating my father-in-laws strawberry plants (haven't got berries yet). He said they ate them right down to the ground but they seem to be coming back no problem.

I found a couple of cutworms in the soil around my strawberries when weeding them. Will they hurt the plants?
