Vinyl and epoxy surfaces offer nothing for the rabbits to "grap" when
they try to extricate themselves from the pond. You might try draping
hardware cloth or chicken wire into the pond and you will solved the
drowned bunny problem. A small decorative boat dock built out into the
water might serve the same purpose . . . be imaginative. Of course that
doesn't solve your garden bunny problem but it is more humane that
allowing the critters to drown.
