I've watched a lot of 'ratting' videos on Youtube.
Dogs,Mink (or similar) or airgun? The most prolific killers I've seen were a bunch of terriers. A group called 'The Severn Valley Ratters' I think they were. Relentless and brutally efficient.
I think I only had rabbit once and as I remember didn't like it,but I was quite young and going through my 'fussy' eating stage. Not sure I'd try it now to be honest after owning my own rabbit.
I 'found' this rabbit after me and the wife pulled in whilst driving to have an argument. We were out in the country and as I looked into a field I saw this black rabbit. He was obviously dumped as I noticed some rabbit food in a big pile close by. We decided to catch him,or at least my wife did as he seemed semi-friendly.
Yeah,he seemed friendly,and as someone mentioned earlier in this thread,they can be quite violent. I was scratched all over my hands and arms and remember driving home with blood dripping and me cursing.
He ended up being a good pet but annoyed the cats with his amorous advances until one day they retaliated and he had to have part of his ear removed after it went septic. I also once found him upstairs in the bedroom making sweet love to one of my wife's fluffy toys. We called him the 'Black Bugger',although perhaps the 'Black Buggerer' would have been more appropriate.
