Packaged food

The idea that our food was once an animal is often difficult to get our heads around. We sort of know it but the reality is that most of us eat packaged meat, me included. I don't often think about all the killing that goes on to provide us with a nice roast dinner.

Well tonight I shot my first Rabbit, a good clean shot, then a quick neck break just to make sure it was dead.

Robb and Sally thanks for the sight. I have practiced much and tonight when it mattered it was "hasta la vista bunny"

Heres the evidence




I don't feel very deep at the moment, my previous post was rubbish, I'll just stick to a bit of reportage until the juices flow again.

Did you really shoot that? I am sure I can see Tom's teeth marks and possibly signs of being hit by a car! Good job Wendy wasn't there.

Wow. I really didn't think it would happen, not with that gun. You need a shotgun. No farm is complete without a shotgun.

Jonah, you have to take a 3 day course to get a shotgun, I didn't have the time. It's a high powered air rifle so as long as I am accurate it should be okay. I would have definitely hit more with a shotgun as you get a better spread of shot. Right now I am just a stealth sniper which I love. Hans Wendy would not have liked it, no Tom didn't have anything to do with it, in fact when we went to pick it up he ignored it possibly because it was dead! Thankfully when we skinned it I could see that it was a clean shot straight through the heart. Helen I think we'll fry it in some oil with garlic.

superb! i don't know what the girls would have made of this, so perhaps it's best that we'd left before The Killing took place... although I would have loved to have joined this little safari. ha ha.
all those hours on call of duty 3 paid off then, eh?

Awesome! Get a bit of rosemary and onions round it!

this photo is sort of frightening...maybe because I've been reading Alice in Wonderland. I think rabbit and dumplings work best, though.
