    I'd like to know exactly what injuries I should look out for while I'm handling my rabbits by the scruff and by the ears. I know it's not nice, but these rabbits will tear you apart if not handled this way. I support their rumps so they don't dangle. I'm going to continue handling them this way so please don't give me some PETA speech. I want to know what injuries to look for so I can watch out for them. I know they're possible. These are small 3 pound rabbits but they are the most vile and violent animals I've ever had to deal with. I attempted to be nice with them and got ripped up. They don't get "nice" anymore. I can't wait to eat them. Until then, what do I look for?
