So why should folks get over their worries about eating cute little critters and start munching out on wabbits? Here are some reasons, according to the video:

  • In the 1940s and 50s, rabbit was “as common as chicken” on supper plates across the USA.
  • Rabbit meat has more digestible protein than any other meat.
  • Rabbit meat is very lean and is quite low in calories, cholesterol, and sodium.
  • Rabbits multiply very quickly.

  • Low environmental impact.
  • Cooks up like chicken.
  • Yes, you CAN survive on rabbit meat.
