Some may feel squeamish about eating it, but rabbit has a fan base that grows as cooks discover how easy they are to raise — and how good the meat tastes.

My dilemma is that I want to raise them for food, my wife wants them as pets. I love the taste of wabbit, werry delishous, werry!

Never tried it myself, although I remember my dad butchering rabbits for somebody else.

My dad's story is that somebody had some skinned rabbits and his mom roasted them for a meal.  One of the kids made the comment "Those look like dogs" and nobody would try it after that.  No more rabbit.

The south americans eat a lot of guinea pigs.  Not much different other than one is more jumpy.

  At our house we refer to rabbit when it is cooked as " long-eared chicken " .  As Elmer Fudd said  "wasckly wabbit "  and " now it's time for wots and wots of west and wewaxation ,   eh-heh -eh-heh "    ---Burl---

   The Australian version is "Underground Chicken". How many do you want, we just cannot kill them off.

I hear your Gov wants to destroy a perfectly good food source with poisons and dynamite ?  What's the problem, your hunters have poor aim or is it, oh yeah, not allowed to own firearms.

I think the problem is that they don't have anything like hawks, eagles, foxes, and coyotes to eat them.  No way humans can control those pesky things.  That'd be a lot of shells.
