I get to go first! You'll see from my picture my current preferred method of dispatch, choke chain. I've tried a couple other ways and I'm very satisfied with this one. To make the loop I tied a bowline (https://www.animatedknots.com/bowline-knot) to each end and looped the rope through to anchor above and below, around the rabbit. Use more rope than you think you need. You can always shorten if it's too long, but standing on tippy toes to get the rabbit in isn't fun.
I would like to submit this video for the Wiki. It really helped me improve my process. From picking up the rabbit to getting the next it takes me 12 minutes.
I did 9 rabbits yesterday. It got hot and I had other chores to do so I stopped for the day. I don't know if the intent of the requested proof is to show a dead rabbit hanging upside down but I chose to not take a picture of that. If it is required, I have others I still need to process, but I would prefer not to.
Collecting some badges. Hoo boy. Lets see if I have all 3 on the same rabbit. I think these all connect well enough.
Ok, so this is a litter from a long while ago, mom was a tricolor Flemmish giant mix, da was a NZW, and this is 3 litters co-habitating in a 4x4 cage.
We process our rabbits using Cervical Dislocation, AKA broomsticking. It's just easiest and fast. Here is a rabbit hanging after using CD. This rabbit is an adult in this photo - long after the initial litter pictures were taken. He was designated a breeding buck, but never sired any litters that we kept any kits from due to aggression so we don't have adult pictures of him.
Well, I don't have more pictures of him, specifically. But I do know he went into this batch of sausages we made! I hope that counts!
