Dad used to raise some. Us kids thought they were pets and never realized we were eating them. Good eating though.We let our kids raise a couple once. Told them when they grew up they needed to be relocated into the wild which made them happy.
That would have been a death sentence for the bunnies as they had no clue how to survive in the wild and weren’t afraid of our dogs.
Better to put them in the freezer after the kids went to bed.
