One of my aunts served rabbit especially for us when we visited her in France. I was freaked out, never even knowing that people eat rabbit but it was pretty good. 🙂
The freaky part was that she asked me which one I liked, I identified my favorite and she pulled it out, held it by its feet and whacked off the head. I had no idea she was going to kill it. 🙁

@Fiddlerman , you know I'm laughing but I didn't mean too. I would have been traumatized.

When we were kids, my sister and I had to big old pet rabbits, Zorro and Cinderella. Imagine my surprise when I went to feed them and they were gone from the cage. Went in the house and their they where, breaded and swimming in gravy. Last time my sister ever ate a rabbit.

Every rabbit I have eaten came complete with an assortment of lead pellets in the flesh.  Totally different experience from finding fish bones by mouth feel, I assure you.

I have eaten squirrel stew that would look back at you from the bowl. I know what you mean.

I don't blame you for laughing, I laugh at it today as well. roflol

I read the figures once, but can't remember them for sure now - something like 500 million rabbits were eaten annually in Britain before myxomatosis ended it in 1953. I sometimes wonder if the beef farmers inflicted myxomatosis on the rabbits. "It was introduced into Australia in 1950 in an attempt to control the rabbit population"

I always wanted to be a juvenile delinquent but my parents wouldn't let me.

That is very interesting. There are so many things that are eaten by one culture and looked down upon for doing so in other cultures.

And it works with things less contentious than animals - people even have different attitudes to things like onions, which we eat, or can eat, as a vegetable, but there are South American Indians who regard it as a relish and wouldn't dream of roasting one or of eating onion soup. And that's quite apart from religions like Jainism that are like level 5 vegans (Simpsons joke) who don't eat bulbs, as it kills the plant!

In the specific case of rabbits, there are possible reasons for taboo that you can read in Jules Verne's Around the World in 80 Days - he says cats have been known to be served up as rabbits! Err, that and my Gordon Shumway persona is a coincidence, I swear! 

And of course they eat guinea pigs in parts of South America. Which I wouldn't. Unless I was on holiday in South America.
