Dwc77, this does not sound mean to me at all. Sometimes euthanizing an animal, no matter how much you love it, is the only kindness left to give.

I had never dispatched a rabbit before until now. I just used the broomstick method for a very sick rabbit of mine. :cry: I think the first pull wasn't very effective but second one I could feel the neck separate. I doubled checked her neck once done and could feel the separation. Thankfully she didn't struggle nor kick. I think will be getting a wringer for future use.

A wringer is worth the money if you are dispatching rabbits regularly, but as an emergency method for a sick or injured rabbit, the broomstick works well for most people.

I'm glad you had the resolution to follow through on this, dburton. :goodjob: It's never easy, even for people who raise rabbits for meat, and the first time it can be intimidating.

BTW, welcome to RabbitTalk! :welcome:

If have been using cervical dislocation (rabbit wringer self made) to dispatch our meat rabbits for several years now,. I find that bruising along the back and legs is inevitable. the wringer method is difficult for my wife, she is small, to administer to the adult large rabbits when needed. I have created a prototype of a new cervical dislocation device that eliminates both of these problems. Follow the link to a video of how it works (graphic): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7ULaJwtigcI

I watched the video, mferg265, and it really looks like an excellent device for dispatching rabbits. You should look at patenting/producing them, much as the RabbitWringer people have. Not everyone could build one, but it really would be helpful to many people if it could be purchased.

:thankyou: for posting about it!

I watched the video and I'm very impressed. I agree that you should consider patenting it.

Thank you for sharing.
