Eating wild rabbit makes a lot of sense our countryside is overrun with them! From an animal welfare viewpoint, rabbits live a wild life and are killed quickly withut transportation or suffering. Wild rabbits are usually killed when they bolt out of their burrows after being flushed out by ferrets and quickly dispatched by hand or are shot in the field. Their lives begin and end in the field.
From an environmental perspective maintaining a healthy rabbit population helps keep ecosystems balanced in the absence of predators. Rabbits don’t eat grain, need feeding or looking after and do not displace animals or potential crops to produce our food.
Their free-ranging lifestyle and wild diet make wild rabbit a great healthy, flavoursome meat that tastes like slightly gamey chicken. If gently cooked rabbit is very tender especially id cooked alongside fatty cuts.
