a .22 works very well & it's not a waste since rabbits are
pretty tasty (unlike squirrel). or import a fox if you or your
neighbors don't have chickens. coyotes also eat rabbits.

more useful than a chicken eating fox)

A quiet pellet gun in an upstairs window is less obtrusive for rabbits
than a .22 (as the police get a call for "man with a gun"). Just stick to

fleas and ticks jumping onto you for a fresh warm body.
What's wrong with squirrel? Just parboil them 15-20 minutes, discard the
broth, and cube them up for use in pasta or rice dishes like cooked
turkey. My boss enjoyed shooting them, but the only way I could get him
to eat them was squirrel chili.
It is probably not good to eat too much preditor meat. Native Americans
that ate coyotes ended up with excessive vitamin A, which can cause bone
problems. So stick to vegitarians and fish eaters.
