    Even if it wasn't a health risk, do people really think that animals that have a very powerful sense of smell want to smell cigarette smoke? They don't reckon that would be irritating and distressing to them? Really some people are very lacking in sense.

    I can't stand cigarette smoke (or any smoke) and get very angry at people who smoke around others.

    The RWAF have just released their Autumn News Letter. It includes a request for Bunny Owners to push the 'Vaccinate your Rabbit(s)' message. It would be a great help if some of you could print out some copies of this poster and then seek permission to display it in various retail outlets that sell Rabbit related products etc

    Also, another important message is this, relating to RHD2 :

    '' The rumour mill has been hard at work and so we recently published this statement
    Here at the RWAF we are aware of 3 significant fatal viral diseases of rabbits in the UK. Myxomatosis (covered by the vaccine Nobivac Myxo-RHD); Rabbit Viral Haemorrhagic Disease 1 (covered by Nobivac Myxo-RHD), and Rabbit Viral Haemorrhagic Disease 2 (covered by the vaccines Filavac KC and V, or Eravac).
    We are not aware of any further versions of RVHD present in the UK, although the variant K5 has been discovered in Asia and Australasia.
    We are not aware of any viral infections that are acutely fatal to rabbits and rodents recently arriving in the UK.
    If anyone has documentary evidence of any exotic diseases arriving in the UK in future please inform us and the Animal Plant and Health Agency.

    And finally, the RWAF FB Auction will take place in the first week of November. Jellycat Bashful Bunny fans may want to take a look when it's up and running

    ''Here at the RWAF we have been asked, over the past week or so, about Myxomatosis in native wild brown hares in the UK. Its important to be aware that this information is subject to change as the investigating continues, but is correct at time of posting.

    Sporadic cases have been reported in the past, of suspected of confirmed myxomatosis in hares, including one which was written up in the veterinary press in 2014. However, this appears to be different in that multiple cases, from a wide geographical spread, are being reported to Dr Diana Bell, University of East Anglia d.bell@uea.ac.uk, and, whilst some have obvious external symptoms of myxomatosis, other dead hares look fine/in good condition or are seen dying with unusual neurological symptoms including inability to move and seizures. A number of possible causes are being explored, including a change in virulence of myxomatosis virus, infection with Rabbit Viral Haemorrhagic Disease 2 (RHD2), or European Brown Hare Syndrome, individually or as co-infections, and its possible that other factors are involved.

    What would really help the ongoing study into the large scale deaths of this iconic species, would be for any members of the public finding a dead or ill hare to contact Dr Bell and to store the body refrigerated whilst contacting Diana to arrange full post-mortem analysis.''

    I'll share with Newark Air Museum grounds team, I don't think they've seen any hares in a few years but worth them knowing. The wild bunny population is still pretty stable there at any rate.
    The geeky one...



    Often available for bunny runs: PM for details.
