To eat a rabbit or not to eat a rabbit? Let’s start with a more basic question: how do we Americans decide what is Good to Eat and what is Bad to Eat? It’s a cultural question, one with a certain amount of economics at its heart. We are taught that some animals are pets and some are food. So, we eat cattle but not horse. But the French eat horse. And the Chinese eat beetles. Puppy dogs go into the soup in some Asian countries. Plenty of other cultures eat what we refuse to eat because their systems allow and encourage it. And we, of course, eat food that others do not, e.g., Mother Cow is sacred to Hindus. There is a long list of foods that make most of us gag because we’ve been taught they are lovable and not good in a stew. Rabbits seem to have a secure hold on the middle-ground.
