Hunting Coonies

 

In the hills there is a small animal called coonie. It is like a guinea pig, tastes like rabbit. A hunter needs small, skinny dogs to hunt the coonie.

The coonies live in an underground den. They come out in the morning and the hunter will then go and stand by the hole. He lets his dogs go and as they chase the coonie back to thier hole, the hunter will hit them on the head, one by one as they try to enter.

Coonies are prepared by boiling, then the skin comes off. The bones are very strong.
