Spoiler alert! This article talks about rabbits raised for food
Rabbits are extremely cute and I understand when people say that they could never eat one, especially after taking care of them on a daily basis.
Right now, I have 21 of them. Most are the larger, brown type that are primarily the meat rabbits. I also have black, tan and white ones that people sometimes purchase as pets.
I guess because my parents hunted and raised farm animals that were meant for the table, I have been exposed to the idea enough that is something I can accept. The meat is lean and I know exactly what the animals were fed - there's no antibiotics or other similar products used. I like that I have a bit of control over being able to provide food for my family. Each spring, I also plant and grow a large amount of vegetables to use in meal preparation for my family.
Just in case you wondered, I do shave my armpits and I go to the grocery store. I have not begun raising crickets for food yet, but never say never...they are a really inexpensive, great source of protein I hear...
