    Default Oh, No !!! Now I've Got Trouble With Rabbits !!!

    Squirrels upstairs and rabbits downstairs! What's a good bait
    for rabbits? I think they're quite cute and I don't want to kill
    them, but I can't allow them to inhabit my downstairs much longer.

    Also, they're good eatin', right?

    Although, personally, I'd use a steel trap like this one I used to use
    as a kid to catch rabbits for the family table.

    If we are not meant to eat animals,
    why are they made of meat?

    You betcha. Fried like chicken, or in a couple of classic French
    renditions. Here is a link to a recipe for lapin a la moutarde,
    rabbit in mustard sauce. It includes a section on how to make stock
    from the head and bony parts of the rabbit. -aem

    Not if you kill them with bait.

    If the bait is for a spring trap, then they'll be okay.

    I hope walnuts work.

    They're in the house? What's attracting them?
    My mom gets them in the yard quite often, but they never get into the house.
    They're content to dine on the stuff she leaves out for them...it distracts
    them from the garden

    Get yourself a cat and a dog. Give the cat free access to the attic
    and let the dog outside. That will take scare them away.

    Probably nothing more than shelter.

    I'm thinking rat traps baited with carrots. Or parsnips.

    My last two cats were killed by neighborhood coyotes.

    I know they're still here, because every now and then in the
    middle of the night, I hear the coyotes howling followed by
    every dog in the neighborhood going nuts.

    Sorry! That's what happens when you live with coyotes. Mom used to
    feed feral cats to keep the rodent population down on her farm. She
    figured if a cat made it past two years, it was *old*.

    Yeah, brilliant... a trap that doesn't discriminate in what it will
    kill/maim. There are far better trap options in this day and age.
    Not hard to find by doing a search.

    >> Also, they're good eatin', right?
    >>

    > Damn straight!!!


    Agree on that much, at least.
    Plenty of bunnies where I am. Tasty, fresh and unadulterated meat. Easy
    to skin and prepare too. Too bad you didn't keep our appointment in
    August lucas, you could've caught plenty of them here...

    > We call them "underground chickens".


    Yeah... lame. Really.

    i've lost a llama & a goat to coyotes, but my barn cats are
    too smart to get cornered... & i make sure they have enough
    *safe* places to get away from predators. they have a hole
    under the barn & up through the floor that is far too small
    for anything bigger than a cat, or skunk. the garage door is
    always open 6", enough for the cats, but not enough for the
    coyotes. there are lots of trees, & there is the Malamute's
    fenced yard & dog house. Chief likes cats. he *hates* coyotes.
    but indoor cats really aren't safe outdoors.

    > followed by every dog in the neighborhood going nuts.


    really? i hear them yipping, but none of the neighbor dogs
    get going as well. none of mine do either (i have 4 dogs).
    2 neighbors (relatively speaking... none are very close) have
    beagles. those stupid dogs bell a lot, but not at the coyotes.
    and the coyotes should eat your rabbits.

    Go on, the only bunny you ever encountered as a kid was the big pink stuffed
    one your "bachelor uncle" gave you to put on yer bed...


    I bet you saw cane toads big as crocs, too...!!!

    Speaking of "chicken", do you prefer the "male" or "female" type...or maybe
    even the "round - heeled" sort...???

    Build an oblong wooden box.

    Put a sliding vertical door on front.

    Make a trigger mechanism with a carrot as bait that will let the door slide
    down when they take the bait.

    Made gazillions of them as a kid. Never caught a rabbit. Not even once.
