Rack of bunny

We joined some friends and went out to a local restaurant, Talisker on Main. They serve a fairly high end menu, with some interesting choices.  This was Bobbie's rack of bunny after she had eaten all the good stuff.  They listed it as rabbit, not rack of bunny, but it is what it is.

The good news is that most of the food served was raised or grown locally (the new fad), but I can't tell you where the bunny farmer was.  I wonder if there is the equivalent of "Kobe Beef" for rabbits?

Why is it that the general population thinks that killing some animals to eat is just fine (cows, chickens, pigs, sheep, fish,...) while others are terrible (bunnies, deer, dogs, cats,...)?  I can understand the ones we tend to think of as pets, but why is a deer or a horse different than a cow? Why is a rabbit worse than a chicken?  And of course, each choice is very regional.
