You werent being sarcastic... clearly you lied to defend yourself when people disagreed with you. Like many people have already mentioned, if the rabbit was in the oven and the heat came on gradually, the rabbit wouldnt have realized what was happening, due to the body adjusting to the heat. After a while the heat would become too much and the rabbit would either suffocate or die from heat stroke or some sort of heat related trauma. Not burns. So there would be no scratching or squealing... PETA wouldn't have done anything either, its not like op or her kids intentionally killed the rabbit, what do you think she did, hear the rabbit and say, "oh dang..." and walk away? Clearly she didnt know until it was too late...
Rabbits actually taste pretty good. My family makes a very nice Rabbit stew.

The "tastes like chicken" is pretty true for all "unusual" meats, haha. Rabbit and frog meat both taste pretty much like chicken. Did you eat it? Roasted rabbit should be delicious. Just cut it up and tell your kids its chicken or something so they're not too traumatized.
Rabbit doesn't taste like chicken, it is delicious but there are many little bones in it. The first time I have tasted rabbit was at the junior high's canteen; there was nothing I liked at the menu so I forced myself to take a bit of it though I was disgusted 'cause I had had 2 pet rabbits a few years earlier. I could not eat up the plate out of mental disgust, but I was sorry to admit I liked the meat very much!
So, #161, aka The_Pleb are you going to cite your references on this or just flounce around on false information? I ask this because of this well known fact: women, no matter their age, always pay less in car insurance than men. Ask any insurance provider (which is what I do), they'll tell you. If women were more dangerous then they'd pay more insurance.
that's what i thought when i quickly read it for the first time, all i saw was: "check - oven - preheat - Sometimes children hide"
Its not like its going to make noise the second she turns it on. It takes a while for an oven to heat up and so she might not have realized anything until it started making noise, at which point its already in pain. She didn't say it was dead. Just that it had been in the oven and she hadn't noticed right away. She may have killed it, or it may just have been injured.
Actually, that's not true. In my college psych class, we talked about how animals (including humans) often don't realize that a gradual change--like the temperature in an oven--is dangerous until it is too late. It's not like being dropped in boiling water or touching a stove. If the temperature is slowly going up or down, our body simply tries to adjust until the end.
Arietie Actually yes, bunnies are usually pets not food. Plenty of people eat rabbit, but how often do you hear it called a bunny when you're eating it? Hardly ever because bunny makes you think of cute furry little animals, and a lot of people don't like to think of how cute and furry their food once was. If someone calls it a bunny it implies that it wasn't intended for eating.
oh my gosh :( totally yls :( were you able to replace it without them knowing?
I totally agree.. If the children were to young/naive to know that a pet doesn't belong in an oven then they shouldn't be left alone with the pet OR even have a pet..
No one ever said they don't think about the pain cows/chickens/etc. endure, but 1. The cow is dead before all the mutilation begins. 2. We should, but we don't think of these things because they sell the cow in delicious-looking burgers and things that don't even closely resemble something that once mooed. 3. Bunnies are USUALLY pets, not food. 4. The bunny died in a very gruesome and unusual way, and probably felt his skin burn off before he passed out or died.
I think this is a fake. I mean there is absolutely no way the person didn't hear noises coming out of the oven. I have owned quite a few rabbits to know that they dislike dark and considering a oven, they will make scratchy noises inside it. No way this is true.
You "imagine?" Do you have kids? Do you have any fucking clue the sort of stuff they get up to? I mean, for one thing, why would you bother checking an oven, assuming you don't keep stuff in it, before you preheat it, especially if you already know that its set how you want it. Your right, it takes about 10 seconds and is a good habit, but if you've never needed to check it you should don't. And really, how do you guys know the circumstances of the audibility of the pet rabbit in the oven? I don't stand around the oven while its preheating, I go do something else. Something else loud, a different room, a different level. And also, for awhile the rabbit's body would try to compensate for the rising temperature until it just overheats, and thus it might not make noise for awhile. So - all the people that just click YDI should try thinking before just clicking it, rather than inferring conditions they don't know and just pressing the button.
