Beetroot eaten in the ground

Just wondering what could have eaten my beetroots? Surely it couldn't have been done by slugs and I don't see any rabbits or hares around.You might enlighten me. They were taken out of the ground in November with all this damage. Curious, Headford, Co Galway Posted: 07/02/2017

The photo shows more signifcant damage than  slugs generally cause, and rabbits are the most likely, becaus e deer tend to eat the tops of plants. Rats are a possibility and curved shaved out bits on the ground are typical.
