Can anyone sell me some dead bunnies?

I live in France but from time to time vist the UK. And bunnies are cheap to buy in the UK so I'd like to stock up. So, can anyone supply me with some bunnies next time I'm over. My normal return route is from Bognor Regis up the M23 to the M25 and then down the M20 through Kent to Folkestone or Dover.

If you can't get any from a Downsizer, Chanctonbury Game sell them at about 3 each http://www.chanctonburygame.supanet.com/

Are you planning on bringing them over on a bike, or coming in a car? Just a thought, because swopping them for wine en vrac would be a great idea, for someone. Sadly, I don't have bunnies, otherwise I would.

I was talking to the game merchant at the market last weekend and he told me that his biggest single cost in providing bunnies is disposing of the waste, which would explain why I've alwasy thought bunny costs too much to buy for something so plentiful.

Is it legal to take unprocessed game into and out of europe?

Silas,
I was talking about issues that relate to France. Given that you don't live in France perhaps I can suggest that you can't comment on this thread.

It's the same with butchering farmed livestock, particularly cattle. Sad

My dear chap, I was mereley asking if it was legal to take these tings out of the UK into mainland europe. I am visiting friends later in the year and may wish to take them a hamper.


Now, are you just looking for responses from residents in France, if so, it seems a bit daft asking your question on na UK based site.

I can't see that there's much more waste on a bunny than there is on a chicken. He's making up excuses.

Silas old chap ! I think you've made rather a good point there.

Import regulations by France customs
"Products of animal origin:
Apart from some exceptions the Community rules do not allow the importation of meat, meat products, milk and milk products by travellers."

So maybe not legal

The 'some exceptions' appears to be meat sold for food. At least, that's what our customs say is fine between EU countries.
