rabbit in LA?

I realise this isn't a restaurant question but I figure it's more appropriate here than on the nationwide General Topics board.
Where can I get rabbit in LA? None of my usual butchers carry it, and it's getting on to that time of year where I crave rabbit ragù. I used to hunt for my own rabbits but down here in Socal that's not a great idea.
Bristol Farms -- the one in Manhattan Beach has begun carrying it all the time, no need to special order.
To eat immediately, Alpine Village has it on their standard menu and is fabulous!
You can get it at Bristol Farms. It's usually frozen and it's not cheap. Also, there's a lot of work getting the meat off the bones for certain preparations. Based on my miniscule knowledge, it seems that the largest concentration of meat is the saddle. A good rabbit stew is hard to beat, but given the cost and the prep time this might be a dish worth eating out.
I recently saw a frozen rabbit at the Farmers Market (3rd and Fairfax). I believe it was at the poultry stand.
