The rabbits could have been fighting. Where there other signs of aggression? You shouldn't let your rabbits fight: it can be emotionally traumatic for the bunnies, and physically dangerous (even small cuts can turn into big abscesses).

Or maybe the rabbit was just grooming, but going a bit too far. Are the rabbits generally snuggly together? Over-grooming can lead skin irritation, and if too much fur is swallowed the rabbit can have digestive problems (including deadly GI stasis), so try to discourage your rabbits from over-grooming.

Or maybe the rabbit was doing nesting behaviour. Normally rabbits pull their own fur but if the bunny is making a nest of fur, then she's either pregnant or going through a false pregnancy. False pregnancies are stressful for rabbits. Spaying the bunny will prevent false pregnancies, ovarian cancer, and some behavioural problems.

This could mean that the rabbit wants to mate, or else he's just angry and is starting a fight. If the fighters are your rabbits, pull them and keep them away from each other.

Why would a rabbit pull out another rabbits fur?

There are several reasons why this can happen. When rabbits are fighting they will often pull out the other rabbits hair.
