Rabbits/bunnies, killing and dressing

Rabbits are an inexpensive and easy meat to raise, and in some areas there are alot of wild bunnies. In my garden, I have live trapped cottontail bunnies that a friend dispatched with the dislocation method, and we cleaned them and people ate them. The wild ones in this area are smaller than ones raised for the table. It was fairly easy to live trap them.

Here is the link on you tube on the method used at polyface farms, Joel Salatins operation, these video are done by his son , Daniel Salatin , this is part one, it is in two parts https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8OkXszeclxs&feature=emb_rel_end
