In the US we largely view rabbits are cute, fluffy bunnies. They are popular pets, and are perceived as an animal NOT for food. We don’t enjoy eating things we think are cute. An Arizona restaurant attempted serving rabbit on Easter Sunday once (see first link below), and faced public outcry, simply because people see rabbits as cute, adorable pets. It’s all about how we perceive the animal.
I think we do not eat as much rabbit in the United States because many people have rabbits as pets. We have other meats readily available to us, such as beef from cows and chicken and pork. This we can purchase at the grocery store whereas rabbits we must hunt, clean, and prepare. A lot of people would perfer to simply purchase their meat from the store and keep rabbits as cute pets.
