Yesterday, as we drove along the lane to go into town for shopping, we had to stop as there was a large rabbit in the middle of the road.
We very slowly drove around it and, as I took a look at it, we noticed that it was very unwell indeed.
It was shaking and seemed unable to move. As we got closer, I saw that one eye was deformed, bulging and quite red.
We were about to stop but then more cars arrived and so, as it is a single track road with not much space to pass, we carried on.
The poor creature was not there on our return.
Our online research suggests that it may have been the victim of myxomatosis. A horrible disease.
