Summary

"Shooting was done solely at night. The rabbits were head shot with .22 calibre rimfire rifles using telescopic sights, from 4-wheel drive vehicles. About every half hour the shooter [Jack Meehan] would pause to gut his rabbits and string them by their legs on poles in the back of his vehicle. (A knife slit was made between the tendon and bone on the lower half of one back leg and the foot on the opposite leg would be threaded through so a pole could be slipped between the joined legs.)"--Photographer's note.
