Thread: What Are These?

    What Are These?

    We feed our dog on (cooked) rabbit - I recently discovered these strange growths inside one of them:

    Can anyone tell me what they are? They don't look like tapeworm cysts to me, but I can't think what else they could be?

    They are abscesses. I imagine if cut open they contained a cheesy/gritty contents? Rabbit puss is very thick compared to a lot of other creatures.

    Section 161 of the Highways Act 1980 (England & Wales) makes it an offence to discharge a firearm within 50 ft of the centre of a highway with vehicular rights without lawful authority or excuse, if as a result a user of the highway is injured, interrupted or endangered.

    According to this tapeworm cysts can look like that although I've only ever seen clear ones:

    No, the contents weren't cheesy or gritty, but more like a kind of putrid slime.

    I'm still leaning towards abscesses!

    In that case I will consider them to be abscesses! What could possibly cause a bunny to have so many of them?

    More to the point that picture almost has enough detail for it to cause a smell from memory!!! Never tire of gutting fish or gralloching deer. Could do that when eating a sandwich...

    But the thought of ever having to gut a rabbit again gives me the dry boke
