A LOT of people need to recheck the definition for ´cruel,´ and butchering rabbits does NOT qualify.Second, in order for us to live, other living organisms have to die, be they vegetables or animals. There is no way around death.The myth is that vegetarianism will save the planet...again, do the research. It is monoculture and irrigation that is killing the planet, not animal farts. The ex-vegan Lierre Keith will give you a starting point in her book, "The Vegetarian Myth."Heheh, I see the article riled up those that buy their food in little packages from the supermarket.
Good for Terri. Rabbit meat is an excellent choice for home raising, and the butchering can be done quickly and humanely by any homeowner or their teenage kids.Rabbits reach ´fryer´ age between 8-12 weeks old. At up to 12 kits per litter, this means you may have enough rabbit meat to feed the needy neighbor down the street and your carnivore pets. In today´s perilous times, becoming self-sufficient is a very wise thing. And http://www.raising-rabbits.com supplies you with all the info you need to do a good job of raising rabbits.Lastly, rabbits serve many purposes, and ´pet´ is only one of many. We highly doubt that Terri, the rabbit raiser featured in this story, would suggest anyone eat their pet bunnies. I know that http://www.raising-rabbits.com doesn´t. Many rabbit raisers have their favorite pet rabbits, and they also have their well-cared-for rabbits designated for producing food for the kitchen table and for their other carnivore pets. We highly recommend raising rabbits for meat and for fur.
