    Incredibly is a bit of a stretch to me. It's good, but not better than a bunch of other meats. For some purposes (stew!), it's very good, but I'd still put it well below a good smoked brisket, pulled pork, or Peking duck. It's good though!

    Pets. I don't regard any animal as "food".

    Might as well just eat it.
    Maybe it doesn't deem you worthy of its attention ?

    Kind of both rabbits to me are pets however to my grand parents they see it as dinner... it's lower on the acceptable scale than say sheep/cows are however much higher than other pets...

    My rabbits are adorable they run around the garden 24/7 <3

    To the people claiming rabbits are stupid, have you ever had a rabbit as a pet before? If no then you have no right saying that they are stupid. They can be very affectionate, caring and loyal. Yes it's true that they have a small brain but they are anything but stupid.

    I hate rabbits as pets, but haven't eaten them either. I don't see why they can't be both.

    Really, one now needs to own a creature to assess its intelligence? What a convenient criterion.

    Sounds pretty similar to humans to me I'm not saying rabbits are the smartest pets around, but if you interact with them enough they will also play with you and even like you!

    Anyway, who says only intelligent animals can be pets? Like I said earlier, I like to care for all kinds of animals, even if the animals don't really aknowledge me(allthough rabbits do if you spend enough time with them). I'm just glad if I can keep them happy and make sure they have a good life. Nothing wrong with that.

    I don't really see the distinction....can't they be both? People keep cows and chickens as pets, but also eat them. I have two kittens that I adore, but I've eaten and enjoyed cat meat.

    I had one and i must say he could be quite stupid! That doesen't mean he was not sweet and loyal though well he wasn't really loyal but still cute!

    I find rabbits incredibly annoying, and I can't see why anyone would want one of these hyper jerks as pets, then again - people nowadays enjoy putting the label "pet" on anything, be it crickets, snakes, turtles... so who am I to argue.

    Now, served on my plate I find them absolutely delicious.

    Turtles have been held as pets for AGES, not sure about snakes, Shoot crickets too.

    I bet they are in some cultures.



    EDIT: Yes, I should't have put the word "nowadays" there, my bad - people have been weird since forever. Especially religions that follow the whole reincarnation thing.

    Both. Just like cats, dogs or any other domesticated animal.
    Religion won't give you answers. It will just stop you asking the questions.

    I have pet rabbits though, so for me rabbits are pets! I wouldn't mine tasting rabbit but I would never eat my pets. I actually wouldn't mind tasting cat and dog either, or pretty much any meat, aslong as the animal isn't mistreated before it is slaughtered!
    In the U.S you won't find rabbit meat in stores so Generally you breed them our buy them from someone who does.
    Never actually hunted wild Rabbit though as I was always told they are less meaty and the meat itself is generally of much lower quality.

    My answer would have to be neither. They're incredibly boring pets (really, they just kind of sit around, at least cats each spiders and such) and there's no reason to eat one when I can have steak, or salad, or pasta, or just about anything else.

    It's not very common here in Australia, they're a pestilence here so probably not many people farm them.

    I used to eat it every now and then, rabbit is pretty awesome. But I've also seen a lot of people have them as pets. Can't it be both? Though probably not at the same time...

    People have kept snakes domestically for thousands of years, for one reason or another.
