Bunnies as a food source?
http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2007/02/01/AR2007020101797.html (print link)

EBERSWALDE, Germany -- Few people raise bigger bunny rabbits than Karl Szmolinsky, who has been producing long-eared whoppers since 1964. His favorite breed, German gray giants, are the size of a full-grown beagle and so fat they can barely hop.

Last year, after the retired chauffeur entered some of his monsters in an agricultural fair, word of his breeding skills spread to the North Korean Embassy in Berlin. Diplomats looked past the cute, furry faces with the twitching noses and saw a possible solution to their nation's endemic food shortage: an enormous bunny in every Korean pot....

....bunny in pot. o.O animal cruelty?

I saw "bunny in pot" before anything else and expected an article about marijuana. Marijuana with bunny...?

I guess...not sure. We breed other animals for food, don't we? So why not bunnies, I suppose? Personally I wouldn't want to eat it, but then I'm not starving so I guess I wouldn't have to unless I went there.

Those weird Americans have been using rabbits as a food source since the 18th century. Er, since they became Americans. Cuniculture dates back to a couple of centuries B.C.
