Rabbit jerky! Never had it but I bet it would be good.
I accidentally made some once, the first time I tried to smoke some rabbit. I didn't really know how to use my smoker yet and basically ended up with jerky. I was good enough (as jerky, terrible as smoked rabbit) that I would try it again.
With the right maranade, tenderizing, and smoking, a dog turd would undoubtedly make good jerky.
OH, I think you are right. I have made jerky out of everything from Emu, Alligator, feral hog, turkey, and the Bonita that we normally just catch for bait. I have even seen jerky made out of Nutria down in Louisiana, so if it can crawl, walk, swim, or fly, it can probably be turned into jerky.
I've made lots Rabbit jerky. Whole mscle is tough to make because the muscles are so small. It can be run through a tenderizer to even the thickness. Most of it was ground and extruded. Very good stuff. Don't over season it or you will loose the natural flavor.
