I’ve cooked prairie dog before, like I do squirrel, both slow pan fried and in “chicken” and rice casserole.
Cain’t see why jackrabbit wouldn’t be OK.
Jackrabbits, cottontails, squirrels and prairie dogs are all skinny little critters when you get the hide pulled off them. 😀
Maybe that happens normally to critters, being skinny that is, who are a high up choice on the predator’s menu ya spose?
