|You could try using the repellent sprays labeled for deer and rabbits, be sure to read and follow all of the label directions for applying and reapplying the spray. Or, you could try fencing the animals out or caging your plants with wire mesh. In my experience, if you have lots of animals in your garden it may be easier in the long run to switch to daffodils -- usually, the animals ignore daffodils while they seem to love tulips.
