we're hunting wabits

Officials with the Division of Public Health and the Wildlife Commission are warning people about rabbit fever
after two hunters contracted it this month.
The disease, tularemia, is a fatal affliction that has already affected two members of a hunting party in the state recently – and has led to a confirmed 17 cases overall since 1999.

“It can make you very, very sick,” Marilyn Haskel, a veterinarian and epidemiologist with the DPH, told the paper.“We want hunters to know you can get very sick and the rabbit can appear very normal.”

Symptoms reportedly include ulcers, swollen lymph glands, or even pneumonia, in addition to other ailments.
