I have started to kill rabbits for food. What I want to know is is it safe to eat the raw kidney and liver straight from the rabbit?

Tularemia is the one that looks like plague, isn´t it? Wouldn´t want that!

ah HA! I didn't say raw milk! I said raw meat. A female, open ranging Cattle (a milk cow) is designed to nourish a cow, not a human. Though, eating the cream of milk, has been shown to be considerably less offensive to the human body compared to drinking all parts of the milk. And about the raw meat, do you research, you will find that from scientific research, you should get sick from bacteria, if you find peoples accounts of trying to eat raw meat, you will find they have never once gotten sick, only improved health. But hey, what do i care that you get sick.

That's the point I was trying to make. If you look at the digestive system of an animal that thrives on raw meat (like a dog) you'll see it is very different from the human digestive system. Humans are not built for eating raw meat.

When a dog eats, the food spends the majority of its time in the stomach, being bathed in acid, like a washing machine, and a very short time in the intestines. It is the exact opposite in humans.

@BoneBrothFast: Well you are correct in some cases. The field of parasitology exploded in the 80's because HIV infection gave us a population of immunodeficient individuals, but there are some things I would not take a chance with, Tularemia being one of them.

This is just plain wrong. I'm sorry - I drink raw milk because I'm comfortable with the risk. That doesn't mean there is NO risk. Same thing for raw meat.

Good grief, dogs have MUCH stronger stomach acid than we do, and us raw feeders have to be conscientious about cooking anadromous fish because of the parasite risk. Freezing won't kill all the parasites. I wish it did! My dog loves a whole raw fish!

We all have parasites. If you have functioning stomach acid, you'll be fine. And just because you might consume a parasite/bacteria/virus, does not mean you'll "catch it." It still has to adhere to parts of the body and multiply.

You should read "Catching Fire - How Cooking Made Us Human" by Richard Wrangham.

Human beings cooking meat is not a recent phenomenon. We started cooking meat at least a quarter of a million years ago (and it may have been as long ago as half a million years). Consequently, the digestive systems of humans evolved and became adapted for eating cooked meat (and we lost the ability to properly digest raw meat).

The digestive systems of dogs are adapted to eating raw meat. A dogs stomach accounts for 75% of it's digestive system (the human stomach accounts of only 20% of our digestive system).

The idea that eating raw meat is somehow "getting back to nature" or eating like our ancestors is--to be blunt--100% wrong. Our ancestors ate cooked meat.

Animals need to eat the type of foods their digestive systems were designed for. Put a dog on a diet of cooked meat, they get fat (because it is too easily digested) and sick.

Put a human on a diet of raw meat, they get thin (because they can't properly digest it), and they get sick.

You are not being more natural, real, or healthy by eating raw meat. In fact, it is just the opposite for humans: unnatural, unreal, and unhealthy.

I am straining to think back to the class in parisitology I took. I cannot quite remember the specifics, but rabbits can carry some nasty parasites than humans can easily get. I would either cook, or freeze for 48 hours before consumption.

everybody and anybody has never gotten sick from eating any raw meat. It's an incredibly better source of protein. theres a whole raw meat community, just google it.

Where are you, geographically and seasonally? This will affect the chances of the bunny carrying parasites and diseases. And no, you're not guaranteed to "catch" the parasite but do you want to risk it?
