After a little research, here is what I’ve come up with. Tularemia seems to be the disease most talked about related to wild rabbits. Transmission of the disease to humans occurs in several ways; cleaning the animal with bare hands, eating uncooked or under cooked meat, or by being bitten by a tick or deer fly. There are definitly other diseases associated with rabbits, and one that I was surprised to see on this list was the plague, who would of thought! I think the question of eating a wild rabbit comes down to personal preference, what kind of homework and research you’ve done, how healthy that rabbits lifestyle and diet was and finally, how hungry you are. As of right now I am still mad about my fruit trees being eaten and something has to be done to protect the trees. I think I will follow Bill’s idea of a tree fortress and save eating wild rabbit until times get really tough.
