I think don't take risk, get rid of those mice as early as possible put few drops of peppermint essential oil a a small piece of cotton and place them in your rabbits hutch as it is very irritating for rats and don't worry it would not harm your rabbit."...the scent of peppermint essential oil. Although the scent is pleasing to humans, it repels mice.

My rabbits became very jumpy when wild mice got into our house. Rabbits are sensitive and easily frightened. Mice can carry fleas and parasites and cause food poisoning in humans when they contaminate the food. Also, more dangerous animals could find your bunny ad hurt or kill him, such as foxes, coyotes and cats. A rabbit can die of fright just by being approached by a predator- imagine how awful this would feel to him. My advice is to bring your bunny inside your house and let him be a member of the family! Get him a litter box, fill it with CareFresh bedding, wood pellets or aspen bedding (NOT cedar or pine- makes animals sick!) and he will become house broken easily, especially if he is neutered. Obviously you love your rabbit, since you took the time to ask this question, so I'm sure you want to give him the best life possible. My bunnies, a husband/wife pair, sit on the couch, cuddle with me, play with their toys, and chase me around begging for treats. Your bunny would love to do all this too- please give him the chance :) . Best of luck- if you need any more advice, go to Binkybunny.com- it's an AWESOME website all about house rabbits. Good luck!
