Using a Rabbit Wringer, Hopper Popper, etc

Post Number:#1  Unread postby OneAcreFarm » Tue Jan 29, 2013 3:41 pm


Here are a couple of videos showing me using a Rabbit Wringer on some older rabbits. Not as smooth as a fryer, but easy for me and fast for the rabbit.

I haven't watched the videos yet. Too many children afoot.

My husband had a ringer made at a local metal shop. We will be trying it out for the first time tomorrow.

Quick question...how hard do you have to pull?

PD, getting a device like this was absolutely the BEST money I ever spent....seriously. I wish I had gotten one sooner.

What I do is straighten my arms and rock back, letting my body weight do the work. You aren't actually pulling with your arms.

I had my daughter's friend make me a knock off in shop of the rabbit wringer. Tested it out on Saturday and it worked great. He ended up making about 8 of them as the shop teacher did not have stiff for him to do. Told the whole class to make more rabbit killers. So now he has a bunch of them. What are the laws could they sell them? Mine worked great.

Thanks for sharing. So far, a pellet gun is working out well for us but I'd definitely consider that method. It looks fairly foolproof, quick and humane.
