    Thumper won’t be coming back…

    He’ll be food for young eaglets.

    If eagles are like pigeons, then once it’s digested she’ll probably get some of it back.

    Thumper would taste even better to the eaglets if he was served this way.

    I wasn’t sure this was a Canadian recipe until you included bacon! But where’s the beer?

    With the rabbit gone it will have to be Welsh Rarebit (best cheese on toast ever!)

    Thumper’s life summed up in two words:
    Lettuce, prey.

    @no1scouse

    …it sounds like a great recipe – if you really want some beer flavor, you can probably cut the tomato juice amount in half, and substitute a bottle of beer…
