dead rabbit

My Mom told me this is a photo of her and Dad before they were married. They’re on a date. So this is a photo of what they did when they were on a date together, because this is Wisconsin in the 1950s.

Mom and Dad on a date, with a dead rabbit. This is Wisconsin.

My mom, holding a dead rabbit, while my dad looks on.

I’ve asked her. She doesn’t know why.

Edit: I asked again. Mom told me this photo was taken at a bar in Algoma, Wisconsin, where the proprietor, a woman named Angie, was known for her skill at cooking game, so if you had shot a mess of rabbits on a recent hunting trip and you knew Angie, you could take them to her and ask her to prepare them for you.
