The CDC noted, according to the paper, “If [the bacteria] were used as a bioweapon, the bacteria would likely be made airborne so they could be inhaled.”

Well just let us let the terrorists know!

I’m surprised that hunters don’t all know about Rabbit fever. I remember back in the 50s when we hunted Rabbits, we never touched them with our bare hands. We gutted and skinned them with gloves on and washed the meat. Then we cooked them and ate them. If it hadn’t been for Rabbits I would have been hungry a lot more often. Think surviving through the great Depression and WWII.

Rabbit fever or Tularemia has a long history as a weaponized bio weapon. The Japanese, Unit 731, and the Soviets conducted research in WII. The U.S. did work with it at Ft Dettrick MD as well as testing aerosol applications on monkeys in the Pacific.

My Dad didn't back in the '40s when he hunted and skinned Idaho jackrabbits for making fur-lined gloves for the Army. He contracted Tularemia and nearly died from it. It's no joking matter.

It’s been around for as long as I can remember...this sounds more like the press pointing out it’s not safe to hunt so give up your guns.

“We want hunters to know you can get very sick and the rabbit can appear very normal.”

This is getting out of hand, these apparently normal rabbits ...

See BS has no idea how this article has helped Americans locate terrorists. Once the terrorists begin harvesting wabbits American Hunters can unload on ‘em and when the terrorists lay bleeding on the cold ground out in the woods, the police will say ... I can see you thought he was up to no good. Show me your terrorist’s hunting license and I’ll be on my way.

A few years ago in Arizona there was a veterinarian who died of it after hunting rabbits.

You’d think a vet would know about that sort of thing.

It’s not a disease that gets much press. Even the doctors who treated my Dad had a difficult time diagnosing it.

I recall taking the same precautions in Arizona. We ate a fair number of cotton tails and no one got sick.

His encounter with peter cottentail is timeless. I think there’s a video of it on youtube. Does anyone have the link?

I thought the same thing, but I posted it to FR for 2 reasons. 1. Becuase many freepers are hunters and should know the warnings and 2. Let freepers decide if this is just more MSM “Keep up the agenda” writing.

No silly, you have rabbits confused with oysters. You are only supposed to eat oysters from the Gulf in months that have a “r” in it. :)

Welcome to the home of conservative keyboard activists. Do you mean the HTML sandbox? If so just do the inhouse search.

We pretty much lived on wild game during depression. During the big war we had been moved to the “city” of Huntsville, Ala. so my brother raised white rabbits in the backyard. We ate those bunnies.
