Yes, I DID use a fertilizer before I planted that contained bone meal.
It was not my usual fertilizer, but was all the store had in stock 
that was for bulbs/rhizomes; pretty stinky too! 
I also have living in the vicinity: woodchuck, deer, skunk, 
squirrels, crows and bear! All now suspects in the crime.
Last night was better; nothing disturbed.Except for one big fat toad 
trying to make a home under a rhizome.
