Others, read at your own discretion. Jeanette Winterson, the author of Oranges are not the only fruit, recently killed a rabbit, cooked it and ate it. Sounds disturbing? Well the real trouble began for her after she tweeted pictures of the dead rabbit in various stages from being skinned to being cooked. Her reason behind this? "Rabbit ate my parsley. I am eating the rabbit".  Winterson's cat too got to taste some of the rabbit.  Here is the list of tweets following the life of the rabbit just after its death.  Rabbit ate my parsley. I am eating the rabbit. pic.twitter.com/36rOpIxqxj — JEANETTE WINTERSON (@Wintersonworld) June 15, 2014 Here is the rabbit washed and jointed for the pot pic.twitter.com/u3sWUAVIF9 — JEANETTE WINTERSON (@Wintersonworld) June 15, 2014 On the AGA in cider with rosemary and thyme pic.twitter.com/OdezgxYFZQ — JEANETTE WINTERSON (@Wintersonworld) June 15, 2014 Here is my cat eating the rabbit innards.

She surely put across her point clearly.  Rabbits! At pest level they must be culled. This year is pest level in the countryside. Rabbits are sold @ market. Why not eat what u catch? — JEANETTE WINTERSON (@Wintersonworld) June 18, 2014
