animal burrow under raised garden

A couple weeks ago, I noticed these holes under my raised garden bed. They definitely weren't there when the snow melted (although I did have a bit of vole damage on the grass adjacent to the raised bed), since I didn't see them when I mowed the lawn a few weeks back.

Any idea what these could be? I think I'll have to dig up the raised bed and put chicken wire at the base before I start planting anything this year..

Thanks!

Looks like either mice or voles
If you saw other evidence of voles
Then prob them

A raised bed would give them a whole lot of a cozy winter home
(Think giant ant farm = https://brandreafarms.com/products/ant- ... 9065901145 )

If you put the raised bed directly on the lawn
Then ya ... prob best to start over, and establish some sort of proper base to deter critters
