I have a lot of wild rabbits living on my 2 acres in Spain and last year at the end of the summer they attacked quite a few aloes I had in pots thinking about where to put them. They must have been thirsty/hungry so to avoid a repeat attack this year I got my local hairdresser to sweep up the hair and put it into a plastic bag for several weeks. I have then made up stocking balls with a tied knot each end and placed about 30 of these old stocking balls around the land, weighted down with a stone so as to not blow away in the wind. So far (November, 3 mths on) I have had no attacks this year and so it seems to be working as the rabbits must think there is a small army of humans around the place.
