And if you DO find any rabbits: **Ingredients**: 1 (3 pound) rabbit, cleaned and cut into pieces 1 ¾ teaspoons salt 1 tablespoon ground black pepper ¼ cup vegetable oil 2 teaspoons sugar 1 red onion, chopped ¾ cup ketchup 1 clove garlic, chopped 1 tablespoon smoked paprika 1 ½ tablespoons Worcestershire sauce 1 cup water **Directions**: Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Skin and clean the rabbit, seasoning the meat with salt and pepper. Heat the vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the rabbit pieces and brown on all sides. Place in a 9×13 inch baking dish. In a medium bowl, combine the sugar, onion, ketchup, garlic, paprika, Worcestershire sauce and water; pour over the rabbit. Bake uncovered for 90 minutes in the preheated oven, basting frequently. Meat should be very tender when done.


If you’re in Australia you do want to kill the bastards. They’re not native, and are out competing native critters. Rabbits, foxes, cane toads, wild horses, wild camels, feral cats – they all need to be culled.


Even if you cut if frequently, they can nest very quickly. Rabbit nests can also be hard to spot even if you’re looking right at it. They can be pretty small and very well covered, especially if there are a lot of divots or ruts in the lawn. If you see a grayish/white, wispy clump of fine hair in the grass, that could be a nest.
