Sounds unlikely; as far as I know all mammals have body fat, especially
animals in colder climates - how would they survive the winter shortage of
food without it? My guess is that wild rabbits have *little* fat compared
to tame animals who are fed ad libitum instead of having to find edible
stuff by themselves.
