Hasenpfeffer (also spelled hasenfeffer) is a traditional German stew made from marinated rabbit or hare. Hase is German for rabbit, Pfeffer is German for pepper, even though in this case, it rather refers to the small pieces of meat. The dish is prepared from smaller parts of a rabbit which are not suitable for roasting. These are braised with onions and wine, the marinade is thickened with the animal's blood.

YUM YUM - I'll take them all!

You have to be a moron to buy a rabbit for easter.

When my daughters begged for bunnies, we visited Linda, and she matched us with two perfect foster bunnies. It sickens me that the local pet stores will try to capitalize on a holiday without any regard to the problems we have with unwanted animals.

I have noticed that everyone has a rabbit story or opinion. It is not uncommon for folks like Hasenpfeffer to try to make a joke out out of what I do. Usually when you question them further w/o judgement the truth comes out. I have had many a 70 yr old retired longshoreman end up crying to me about things that happened accidentally or outside of their control 50 yrs ago. Think about that the next time you commit an act of cruelty.

The story is usually the same - these folks loved a bunny once and it either ended up on the dinner table, as a hat or died an accidental horrible death.

Often, folks make the mistake of treating their pet like a dog or cat (predator animals). Rabbits are PREY animals - as in German Stew.

In this country we are confused further because folks can still remember times when they ate rabbit because it was a cheap meat source that didn't use ration stamps (WWII)

In Pet stores, when we buy food and cages for our bunnies - guess what?! The majority of the cages available and even the pellets are designed for raising meat rabbits, which are slaughtered at approx 8 months of age.

It turns out that rabbits aren't even Rodents - they are lagomorphs - exotic critters. They are smarter than your cat, trainable, and live longer than your average dog.


To have a happy, friendly and healthy pet Rabbit, you need a different approach. The house rabbit society is a good place to start getting educated. http://www.rabbit.org

Other things you can eat include Possum. rat, dog, nutria, sparrow, squirrel and raccoon. I'm fairly certain that Hasenpfeffer has a recipe for those too. The part I don't believe i s that Hasenpfeffer would feel equally compelled to share his/her dog recipe in a similar discussion forum. Come to think of it - Hasenpfeffer hasn't shared his / her name either.....

Makes you wonder doesn't it?

That is beyond disgusting. What a moron. I'll be buying a dog and cooking it in a stew (NOT!) Eating precious pet animals is disgusting. I'd suggest feeding them humans, but tough old bad-tasting humans would make them sick.
