The humans recovered most of the Sandleford corpses, perhaps to eat them.
Have you considered making each day count - doing something meaningful each day - instead of letting the days and weeks and months and years fly into oblivion? --Bright Side

There was this boy who put the bodies on a stick, but Hazel cut Holly off before he could finish that part.

It is the best way if your planning on skinning them.

Probably wouldn't want to eat them considering how they were done in.

That cannot be possible for one important reason they are forgetting: Rabbits' bodies are poisoned.
I don't think even their skins would make a coat because of the poison.
Even so, it was a very sad end for all the rabbits and other animals that live in those construction areas ...    :blackberry4 :blackberry-buck
I love Watership Down!
 
Everything is fine =) (?)

I'm afraid that they were probably just thrown away - if they were not crushed by the machinery. :/
Here lies a signature that has little point.

It's just so tragic... :hickory

Also, most rabbits didn't make it above ground, so the bodies stayed there until they started excavating :fiver3

Interestingly, the miniseries skips the entire gassing part, they start excavating right away :toadflax

Very cute photograph, Acacia :pipkin
