In Chinese Horoscopes they have 12 animals, one is the rabbit.  The Vietnamese follow these horoscopes as well, but have changed the rabbit into a cat since rabbits are not a native animal to Vietnam.

Rabbits are commercially grown all around the world and sold in butcheries.  Even though rabbit meat is not common it is still eaten the USA, Canada, Africa, Europe, Australia, New Zealand and Britain.  Rabbit is a really lean meat so great for people watching their calorie intake.

In Hanoi these cute wee fluffy rabbits are sold as pets or meat.  When I saw them I just wanted to buy them all and take them all home.  Do what with them, I wasn’t sure?
