lot of mixy here horrible death for rabbits they go blind and fall to bits
Thats horrible! Where is it? So I can avoid with all costs.
It gets everywhere really.
I live in Lincolnshire and its awful in some places and not as bad in others, it is a horrid disease
it can appear anywere i have killed a few this morning
My friend has borrowed my JRT today to help clear their fields, it's absolutely rife at the moment. Poor buggers I wouldn't wish it on any creature.
its a long painfull death i hate it
this may sound really dumb, but what is it?? it looks awful, poor bunnies
We haven't got any here at the moment, but only a matter of time with this rain and warm weather
Good for you bordie for puting the poor things out of their misery.Such an evil way to die.
its a disease intruduced by man in the 50s to kill rabbits its spread from one rabbit to another by fleas they wander about blind takes them a while to die
never know rona they may be lucky it realy gets to me when i see it
wow i`ve never seen or heard of it before. how cruel can people be, it never ceases to amaze me
I'm going to sound dumb in saying this but Bordie you know my little fox problem, can foxes pass on myxi to rabbits through carrying fleas from rabbits they've killed with the disease? I know theres different types of flea and not sure if the rabbit flea can live on a fox to pass it to pet rabbits.
not sure i think if foxy is killing mixy rabbits he will carry there fleas they might not stay on him long but he will have some
I think if they have killed a mixy rabbit within the previous 24 hours, in theory they could pass it on
Here you go
Myxomatosis - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Thanks you two. I'll be treating my girls for fleas then till we can deal with the fox.
Horrible horrible way for the rabbits to go, my uncles garden was over run with wild rabbits in the early summer, they've all gone to mixy now. Not a one left, Alf should know he had his head down all the holes the other week, and yet they've been plagued by rabbits for the past couple of years or more.
Good on you for shooting them and putting them out of their misery, how awfull for the poor little things.
It's horrible, poor things
I think you should put a warning on this thread though, those pics can seriously upset people, especially the younger members.
