On these pages there are detailed pictures of how I kill and butcher the meat rabbits we raise. If this type of thing bothers you then ...
Follow the links on the left to read and see how we do things here. Please keep in mind - this is just ONE way to kill and butcher. There are others.
I don't keep the rabbit skin/fur so I don't really care how it comes off - other than not tearing off any meat. Also, since the meat is going to the dogs I don't care if it becomes dark because the blood wasn't drained from the body immediately or any of the other things to watch out for when you butcher animals for human consumption.
