    Can a racoon get it's paws through rabbit wire? I have my silkie chicks in a rabbit hutch low to the ground. They are not sitting on wire floor yet, but the side and front are rabbit wire. Our yard is fenced and we have a dog, but racoons have been in the yard before regardless of the dog's presence. Brave racoons, old dog.
