No silly boy....pork with a bit of fat on! Seriously wonder if it was a pet and someone released it, which if it was the case is wicked. Perhaps it hitched a lift in a convenient lorry from Calais ...
In which case it will be un lapin.
My French relatives often cook lapin en hure, which is with herbs and vegetables.
Also lapin en paquets, pieces of rabbit, deboned and wrapped in bacon, cooked with garlic.
Lapin is often cooked in Belgian cherry flavoured beer, it's called lapin ŕ la kriek.
Don't confuse lapin with ličvre, (hare), that's often cooked with onions and shallots, called ličvre en civet.
Here endeth the French lesson.
