I'm fairly certain this counts as cruelty to animals.
I don't mind the principle of eating rabbits (I've had quite a few in my lifetime), but as soon as an animal becomes a pet you should have an obligation to, well, not eat it. Or indeed kill it (PETA's stance towards euthanising healthy animals is the main reason I could never support them). This just seems to be cruel though. If you don't want to care for a rabbit (particularly one you found at the side of the road, you should give it away. At this moment I'm slightly tempted to write to this guy and buy the rabbit from him.
