Many people raise bunnies as food for the dogs. Mine eat em too but they catch the wild ones!

The other day my dog went after a big bunny. Perhaps I should not have interrupted.

The one thing I can't stand is the rabbit death-squeal lol!!! It makes me feel strange xD I'm not sure I could watch Koda kill/eat one while it squealed. Well. I could. But I would have a very displeased expression. Lol.

That reminds me... the reason why I decided to not raise rabbits for dog food.

Is it loud enough to be heard 1/4 mile away? That was how far I had to recall my dog back. It might have been a jack rabbit.

When my uncle's male, Jabo, killed a wild hare... We heard it screaming from about 1.5 miles away lol. Dronimoe (my wolf/GSD) took off in that direction and stole the rabbit before Jabo could eat it.

Maybe it depends on the rabbit?

When you break a rabbits neck they die quietly. That's the method I use for my meat rabbits.

When I was a teenager, I was babysitting for three kids who lived next to a couple of other kids who raised rabbit for the pot. The kids came in and asked if they could watch them butcher some rabbits. I said ok, so we went next door and watched the boy (about 13) hit the rabbits on the base of skull to kill them and then butcher them.

The rabbits died instantly. There was no death scream. The intestines jumped about quite a bit, and that was gross. The kids I was babysitting actually had pet rabbits, but none of them were squeamish about it. It is one of the kind of kool things about living in a pretty rural area.

If I had to make that decision today, I would have told the kids they could watch that sometime when their parents were there to give them the ok.

When I was a kid we had a timberwolf/malamute. She ate my guineapig through the top mesh. Then a parakeet ripping the cage off the ceiling and through the cage, feathers everywhere. THEN- a negbors aggressive small breed and we had to get rid of her.
While my dog is on raw im not gonna encourage her killing because it leads to trouble.

We have outdoor cats that leave been trying to engage us in a barter system. They leave dead things in various stages of consumption, hoping we'll trade for a bowl of kibble. Rabbits, mice, snakes, a rat, moles, and birds.
