Day 8 – Rabbit
Wow… I just enjoyed my first rabbit. And he was wonderful!
I do have to say that it was a bit unique to meet my meal a few hours before I ate him! Here at African Renewal University they grow rabbits to provide meat. The farm attached to the University provides 60% of the food needed for the students and serves as a demonstration project for the students to learn about stewardship.
As part of the demonstration, they grow rabbits because they grow fast, need little space, and two rabbits can produce more meat than a cow’s meat in one year. Strategic stewardship!
The only thing that bothered me was WHO was chosen to be led to the slaughter. They chose the heavy males. Hmmmm… a little close to home if you ask me!
Oh well… he sure tasted good! Thank The Lord for some meat… the first of the trip!
