Strawberry plants gone

Hello - I wonder if anybody else has this problem and could shed some light please? Overnight all the leaves from the strawberry plants in a bed and also in pots in the front garden have been eaten. Every last bit of every last leaf. Stalks and some flowers left intact. No sign of slugs or snails. We do get deer in the garden and (though not for several years) occasional rabbits. Suggestions please?! And do you think any chance of them regrowing? PS: I also have several 'wild' strawberry plants but these weren't touched. Thank you!

    Sounds like an occasional rabbit to me - in an urban district it's only a problem for people with pet rabbits: apparently the leaves are irresistible...
