a VERY long time! I'd say about 6500 years, maybe more! Before rabbits existed, there used to be hare hunting, then they found rabbits and preferred them because they had a softer coat, and had a sweeter flavour for eating. I hate talking about rabbit hunting because I just LOVE them, but when it comes to answering, I am VERY keen because I am so chatty!
