Excuses, excuses. Well she has a point, but still I don't whine when something is keeping me from doing business properly.

Agree with you there, but at least they eat their own poop. I have seen it.

 If the helicopters are terrorizing them, then it's clearly a hare raising event.   What's her complaint?

Aren't rabbits super skittish? I knew someone with pet rabbits, and one of supposedly died from a heart attack from the shock of a loud noise.

If somebody's helicopters scared my rabbits, I'd be hopping mad.
 
2014-05-16 12:21:21 PM  
What she described is legit. I had some rabbits and saw that freak out behavior one day. They all went nuts and took off in all directions running into things and each other. I was at a loss to explain it until a few second later when I saw a hawk's shadow go through the yard. They take "death from above" quite seriously. I was also able to simulate the hawk by waving a broom slowly overhead.

I wasn't aware rabbits required human oversight and management to breed. I would think if you have a talent in the breeding assistance arts, there are other species that could use your skills like bears (Panda, Polar, etc), whales (Blue, Narwhals, etc) or LARPers and Bronies.

/on second thought...

You would think the FAA would have pretty strict rules about a company-owned helicopter hovering over some random person's property.

But it's for oil, so I guess anything goes?

If they were flying over private property at an altitude of under 100 feet, I'm surprised that somebody didn't grab a rifle or shotgun and express their dissatisfaction.  Especially in central PA.

"Some of the survivors were unable to breed, said Knowlden, who said the show rabbits' pure bloodlines go back 28 or 29 generations."

So at least 7, or 10 years tops if you breed them every other year.

They have two different kinds of poop. Goopy poop is apparently mostly bacteria, and they eat it for the protein. Poop they don't eat is dry and hard and kinda looks like chocolate Reese's Puffs.

The lower spine of a rabbit is very weak. When startled (domestic rabbits), they often strike their back against the side of their cage, breaking their back. I can see a sudden, low flying helicopter causing the rabbit to do this.

Coelho à Caçadora
(Rabbit Hunter Style)
Serves 4
Although rabbit and hare dishes are enjoyed all over Portugal, they're most associated with the Estremadura and Ribatejo regions. This hearty dish, perfect for autumn, originally called for the blood of the rabbit, granted a bit tough to find at your supermarket these days. Instead, I use the liver to add a bit more dimension and body. If you're squeamish about the thought of rabbit, you can use 3-pound butchered chicken, but, alas, the flavor won't be the same.
ATENÇÃO: Don't be afraid to get the mushrooms really dark or to char the onions a bit. This is a rustic, woodsy dish, after all.


1/2 pound thick-sliced slab bacon, cut crosswise into 1-inch pieces
One 3-pound rabbit, cut into 8 pieces, liver finely chopped and reserved
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
Olive oil, if needed
10 ounces mixed mushrooms, thinly sliced
3 medium yellow onions, cut in half and then into thin half moons
2 Turkish bay leaves
3 garlic cloves, minced
1 cup dry red wine
One 28-ounce can whole peeled tomatoes, preferably San Marzano, with their juice
2 sprigs flat-leaf parsley, plus chopped parsley leaves for garnish
1 tablespoon chopped fresh oregano leaves
1 teaspoon chopped fresh sage

1. Heat a large pot over medium-low heat until hot. Add the bacon and let it sizzle until the fat is rendered and the meaty bits are crunchy, 18 to 20 minutes. Transfer to paper towels to drain.
2. Generously season the rabbit with salt and pepper. Raise the heat to medium high and sear the rabbit in the fat, working in batches if needed, until golden brown, 6 to 8 minutes per side. Transfer to a plate and set aside.
3. If the pot is dry add a drizzle of olive oil. Lower the heat to medium, add the mushrooms, onions, and bay leaves and cook, stirring occasionally, until deeply colored, 18 to 22 minutes. Add the garlic and cook for 1 minutes more.
4. Pour in the wine and let it burble for 30 seconds, then nestle in the rabbit pieces. Squash the tomatoes with your hands over the pot and add them along with their juice, the 2 parsley sprigs, oregano, and sage.
5. Bring the mixture to a boil, reduce the heat to low, add the reserved liver, and simmer, covered, until the rabbit is cooked through, about 1 hour. Toss the parsley and bay leaves. Taste the liquid and season with salt and pepper, if needed.
6. If you're so inclined, transfer the rabbit to a platter and with a slotted spoon scoop the vegetables into a small bowl. Turn the heat under the pot to high to thicken the liquid. Otherwise, arrange the rabbit in the middle of the platter and spoon the mushrooms, onions, and tomatoes on top. Sprinkle with the bacon. Pour a bit of the liquid over the top and serve the rest on the side. Shower the dish with parsley just before serving.


/you're welcome, enjoy

Come and listen to a story about a man named Jed
A poor mountaineer, barely kept his family fed,
Then one day he was shootin at some food,
And up through the ground came a bubblin crude.

Depends on where the airfield/landing spot is?

I live within 2 blocks of a medical helipad (also lived within a block and a half of one in another state) and an airbase airfield and used to live literally across the street from an Army airfield. Her comment that they were 20 feet over her barn is bullshiat unless they were landing in or taking off from her front yard. Even as close as I live and have lived to helipads now, unless choppers are experiencing severe trouble or extreme pilot error, they're high enough that the animals (including the family of wild rabbits that live in the backyard under the rosebush) might freeze for a minute, then go on about what they were doing.

Oh, I agree that fracking is an issue and not as "safe" as they claim (in Oklahoma, despite the fact that Oklahomans, the OGS, and the USGS are all well aware that we have fault lines here, fracking has been linked by geologists to the dramatic rise in seismic activity along those faults, and last week or the week before, the OGS and USGS released a joint statement warning that a quake in excess of 5.0 will happen according to the seismic activity indicators). I also agree with the "fark fracker all to hell and salt their farking fracking bones."

I just think that this woman may be exaggerating a tiny bit. Not that her rabbits got skittish, not even that some may have died. But the circumstances and distances? Oh yeah, she's lying her ass off--and that's gonna get her suit tossed like last week's bathwater in 1732.

It is very, very good.. slightly gamey if not prepared correctly but it has a very sweet, rich flavor to it. If I could compare it to any other meat, I would say "rabbit"... there's really nothing like it.
