A friend posted that the latest virus plague is (deep breath) Rabbit hemorrhagic Disease Virus serotype 2 (RHDV-2).
At first I was relieved that this particular virus only strikes rabbits. I read a little further and thought, “Perhaps it’s just in Utah,” but then I saw this:
“How can you tell if a rabbit has the disease? Infected wild rabbits may be lethargic and not flee when approached.”
“Oh no,” I thought, “not the chunky bunny.”
I fear that the fearless, chunky rabbit of stone might not be long for the world. Or, potentially, people will creep up on these bold bunnies and capture them and eat them, and then we will have an even more novel coronavirus to deal with (or, in my country, ignore).
