Rabbits should be eaten

There really is no need for the city to spend time and money coming up with a way to control the rabbit population in and around our city.

Re: Feral rabbits concern neighbourhood, Dec. 1

There really is no need for the city to spend time and money coming up with a way to control the rabbit population in and around our city. All they have to do is have the rabbits euthanized in a humane manner and prepared (skinned and cut into pieces) and give the meat to the food banks.

Rabbit meat is really delicious and a good source of protein – I know, because as a child in Ireland, rabbit pie or stew was a regular on our supper table and it was something we all looked forward to having. If anyone would like a recipe, I will gladly supply it.
