I’ve come across this a few times in the past after rabbit shooting, and one dealer told me it’s because part of the guts go off to be used in some pharmaceuticals for women.
I don’t know whether that’s true or not, but what I have noticed is that the ‘leave the guts in them’ requirement normally crops up around October.
That’s because the rabbits, I believe, were destined for the European markets so I can only think they like them like that over there!
All I can say is the rabbits must be fluorescent green by the time they’re finally skinned.
Strange things women and Johnny foreigners…
