Gollum with a dead Rabbit in the New Line film
Small, chubby rodents living all over Middle-Earth. Rabbits dug holes for themselves to live in. They were hunted by Foxes, Gollum, and people. While Gollum liked to rip Rabbits apart and eat them raw, Hobbits and other people made delicious soups, sauces, and stews out of their meat. They made delicious, warm meals for people after a hard day of work, or on a rainy, wet, night.
