    My dogs love fresh rabbit for breakfast.There is good ,high quality protein in rabbit meat.

    They grew up on this.Then the rabbit population went down as the locals cleared brush.(their habitat).

    Lucky dogs

    It's that time of year. The dogs seem to enjoy the furry squeaky toys. I once hit a nest with my tractor tiller and had bunnies flying through the air - I felt a little bad about that one.

    These days I just rescue the ones that I can and let the kids try to keep them alive. By the time the survivors are old enough to be let go the kids interest in them has pretty much peaked.

    Mmmmm. I hunted a lot of bunnies back in Kansas in my youth; actually beyond my youth. Nothin' quite as good as fried cottontail bunny and biscuits and gravy. Good stuff, Maynard!

    i would be worried about worms or something too if my dog ate those. just sayin... I'm sure your dog is fine but it doesn't hurt to check it out. would be a shame to lose a good dog to that

    My dog is so spoiled that he wouldn't eat a bunny until you put 4 dog treats, a hunk of cheese, and some salsa on top of it.
